    We have not made a full year here yet, and I was wanting to do some fishing next weekend when I get back from work. So surf around home (Seaside) lakes (East or West) or jetties in Destin?

    I'd say not much, it's been pretty cold and usually the fish don't bite when they get cold. As far as surf fishing you might have luck there the Gulf is usually warmer.

    We have been catching Reds and Croakers and the occassional Speckled Trout on shrimp. Still lots of Mullet to throw a cast net at in the bayou.
    We are about to smoke up a batch of Redfish and Mullett we got recently.
    Tide has been so high lately that it would seem difficult to fish until the wind calms down.
    My luck has been Hogtown Bayou and the 331 bridge.

    Really, what do they do when they get cold, hibernate? They'll bite, you've just got to find the fish.

    No problem, with 10,500+or- posts, I assumed this was one of those thousand or so times when you didn't know what you were talking about. Don't be so sensitive. I'm just pointing out that they will bite but locations, lures, presentation, etc. may be a little different than the spring or summer.

    Have you thought about visiting your local, locally owned, conveniently located tackle shop for friendly advice? Here's a link to our winter fishing report http://www.waltonoutdoors.com/?p=1018

    Stop by sometime - we don't bite.

    You seem to be holding back some sort of secret fishing knowledge. Please enlighten us.

    I do enjoy it but don't want to bore you. I learn something new every time that I go.

    Thanks for confirming that you're nothing more than a useless troll.

    Any fisherman worth his salt never lets out all the best spots or what works every time. :ninja:
    Otherwise, every great spot will always have someone already there when you decide to go. :bang:
    I might throw a young pup a bone once in a while, but the old dogs trade bones very carefully.

    No hostility, just an observation. I'm sorry if you read a tone into that wasn't intended. I'm just doubtful of someone who states that someone is wrong, but then just happens to choose not to offer up an explanation.
