The guy I'm fishing with is fairly new also, but has really nice equipment. From what I can tell it's bait fishing, which is not my favorite, but probably increases our chances a little until we get better. I also hear it's a zoo down there. Anyone been and fished that area?
you can fish the Skyway bridge on the moving tides and have a decent chance...if you have a cast net, get some greenies literally underneath the old causeway (which is a fishing pier)...then anchor or tie off and drift them behind you Carolina rigged with pop-off weights on circles....you could also go the expensive route and buy crabs for bait...drift them back too....
or cast coon pops and the like in the same area...good luck and post up a report when you get back in any event...
