Weather may be to windy to yak this weekend. Any good wade fishing spots in gulf Breeze area. I was thinking bout gulf national sea shores or big Sabine. Never wade fished but looking for trout and reds

Been doing a lot of wade fishing recently. Its been windy so I haven't had my boat out. The areas you stated as well as naval Live Oaks across the sound would be a great place. Between recent reports and experience, bring a gold spoon, a jerk/twitch bait and a jig. Live bait, under a popping cork would also be great.

Sounds like a plan. I stay down the street from naval live oaks. I have all 3 baits as well lol. Any tips on what areas to target or how to fish them

Where there is grass there is bait. Where there is bait there is predator fish. Find grass and work it.

Jerk bait: Reel two cranks, pop it once or twice then pause for a second. Rinse and repeat.

Spoon: Retrieve at a medium steady pace.

Jig: The retrieval varies. Plenty of YouTube vids on that. Or plenty of people on here that have better info. I don’t really have the best luck with them. Others on here use them like crazy.

Pooping Cork: can really make for a fun trip. I love them. Tie one end to your main line. Then a 18-24” flouro or mono leader to the other. Tie a live bait hook with a shrimp on it to that. Cast it out, pop it, reel a bit and Wait like two seconds. Then rinse and repeat. Sometime I’ll just drift them over grass/structure and let the wind do the work. You can also use a jig in place of live bait. If doing that, keep it moving.

First lite,last lite for topwaters.
About an hour of each is best.
After that switch to midwater colume or bottom.
Don’t forget the flounder.
