I have been out several times in the bay and I am having trouble finding redfish. I am looking for any help you are willing to give whether that beareas to try , techniques, bait, anything thatmight put me on some redfish. Thanks in advance for you help.

Claw i have fished that bay a bit, i used to live on eglin and launch from thier. i had my best times early in morning or at night (night being better) around the coast guard jetties and around the Destin bridge. I would also try going out of the pass (if its calm kind of scary at night) and make a right at the west jetty. fish that jetty towards the end and hold on. We caught eight redfish thier one night and a couple of black tips. all of the redfish were way over size limit but they were fun. Hope this helps. OH one more thing , in october these spots will be REALLY good.

the last time I fished under midbay bridge I caught a keeper red on a bull minnow. That was about a month ago. Theres a lot of grassflats and points(white point)to fish where you should catch a red also.

Try the grass flats behind Range 22 on Eglin. Schools of reds move across the flats late in the afternoon. Use a sidewinder.
