    What are you fishing for? Live or dead bait?

    The bridges seem to be holding a variety of different fish right now but for edibles (in season species) I would target the bulkhead flats just outside of the mouth of the river. Trout, flounder and Spanish macks should be a good bet.

    zero luck on the flats.....had awesome greenies form the bait guy. overflowed my well for 25 bucks..awesome. worked int o the bay at emerson point..the barge and the seawall....flounder pass was all grass and low tide...hard in there..

    went to some deep mangroves on a canal I always catch fish and did again..cpl jack..small snook..5/4 catfish....all under the mangroves...didn't have any luck at the bridges but I trolled em instead of anchoring up. spent about 6-7 hrs on the water so catching fish was just a bonus. had a few huge hookups that broke the line twice and one I fought for a few minutes til it spit the hook
