One method that works well on windy days in the Spring and Fall is using live shrimp on a popping cork. This method allows more fishing technique to be used – casting and setting the hook, and not just dropping over the boat side. On calm days, try live or cut mullet, dead or live shrimp, pin perch or crabs. On windy days, use a bait that gives off a scent to attract the fish in murky water. Another bait method is using piggy perch or croakers. This method is often used by guides and when the fishing is “on” is a great bait for trout or Redfish. This bait method is generally used between May and September.After the catch, visit one of many local restaurants that will cook up the fish, just how you like it.
