Been in the area for about 5 years now and finally got a 18 ft center console to do some fishing. Looking for fishing advice for Choctawhatchee bay in late winter. Most things I read seem to indicate the fish are in the deeper areas of the bay or along the bridge pilings. Thinking of going Saturday if weather permits and starting at the Destin pass/jetties as the tide comes in and working back into the bay as the day goes on if this seems logical. Looking for reds, trout or even some sheepshead or flounder. Bull reds would be fun. Any advice on bait, fishing the bottom or top, trolling for reds etc.. Would be great, would love to strike first blood in the new boat Saturday I have a nine year old boy I would love to get hooked up on any decent fish. Thanks for your help.
