    Flounder and red around the docks off Mandarin Point.  Is it common to catch reds and flounder off Mandarin Point?  I’m asking because it’s rare for me to fish this area.

    You can catch reds trout flounder black drum and sheepshead around the docks in the mandarin area.

    What time of year is best for Mandarin Point? What do you use? Artificals, shrimp, finger mullet?

    I like the area in the summer when we have a good shrimp run.

    I've never had any luck with those lures and I've fished the hell out of them. You have a secret for fishing them?

    Just real them in slow always let the lure hit the bottom first.

    Area will get so good later in the year to where there is really not a whole lot of reason to run anywhere else. We've caught blues as south of OP, speckled trout down to the Shands and Pompao in front of Moosehaven............

    Any tips for fishing the area, particularly near Beauclerc Point?  I teach over at Bolles and I'm trying to get a fishing team going for next year.  I've caught all sorts of fish between the buckman and downtown, but struggle with consistency. 

    When do the two reefs over by San Marco get active?

    Have not fished the reefs but a sure bet is that as the docks and drops fill up so too will they......maybe?

    Same as with any other place........tide velocity, depth changes, bottom composition, structure.........and then often it won't work no matter what you do.
