Not sure if you want to go shallow or deep but, and this isn't a lot of help, I was down there with some friends a week or so ago and we caught a few fish in Mitchell's cut before the Left/East Turn going to the old coast guard station. Didn't catch a fish in oilfield cut or near the old coast guard station. We went to go offshore but the wind didn't allow it and I couldn't get my boat very shallow with the water out. Several places I have fished before were inaccessible. I told my wife I needed another boat and she walked off
I ended up taking them to the end of the small jetties and the pier and we caught 3 bonnet head sharks, several sheepshead, a couple black drum, whiting, and the dreaded hardheads. We also caught several fish in the ICW at the house we rented, including some redfish. When you get to go a couple times a year you have to take the weather in stride. I'm going back during Spring Break on a family trip, if we do any good I will relay the info. I'm sure we will hit the big jetties this time.
I couldn't fish it last time but when I am there I try to drift fish by grass island and around the lighthouse / state park area and catch a few. Several boats headed that way while we were there.
