People in the area really know how to take advantage of the waterfront and places to catch fish that you can eat. Forget about catching sharks, we want to catch a nice trout or red fish so that we can take it home for dinner. Ask for what live bait is taking the most fish and where, when you pick up your bait. Tide movement is everything in the channels.
The local newspaper does a pretty good job of explaining what is biting each week. We would recommend taking a good look at the last couple of editions and just pay attention to the facts. They explain what lures or live bait works best and why.
