So sounds like they're just off the shore? Shallow = spooky in my experiences.
I've either had to cast onto the shore then drag lure into the water or cast well ahead of the fish and wait before twitching.
The splash of the lure turns them off.
Then there's the days when artificials do nothing because of the abundance of food.

ETA Finally found this mans site, he always had good advice about chasing fish.

If you're on the Gulf side, the water is pretty dang clear and I have been in the same boat you are - I see them but all they do is turn from what I throw, no matter what it is. As I usually am out with the wife and kid for a family beach day, I don't have live bait with me, I just have what I have brought in artificials. I would love to crack that code, too! Wish I could help ya!
If I ever get it figured out I’ll be sure to post back here

Little secret here, throw a black rubber worm at them. Throw it way ahead of them. Let it sit there until the school moves into the area then work it slow. 12" black culprit. Or you gotta switch up to the "panhandle rig" basically a loooonnnggg dropshot setup. That's all I can give you publicly
