I can't offer advice but I sure would like to know what the locals or the experts tell you. I'm heading down next week to the same area and I don't want to strike out. I want to know when the best time to fish is (based on day or tides) and the best bait/lures to use for seatrout, bluefish, drum, or other tasty edibles.
In years past, I've used pinfish for live bait and red jigs with white worm or white jigs with red worm. Pinfish were more successful fishing on edge of sand beds surrounded by sea grass. But still, some days are just awful. I feel I'm missing some critical info that someone down there surely most know.
Any good books or magazines that I could read up on would be appreciated as well.
