If I had to guess (which is never safe) Id say he parked in the small gravel area on the side opposite Smorgan Steel and then walked to the water. I used to always walk over the RR tracks, go down the rockpile and fish the corner. Casting out into the channel we would always catch horses croaker (bycatch), black drum, puppies and even a sheepie every now and then. Not trying to burn spots, but that is how we used to always shore fish the Gilmy..
Not me. Park on either side. I fish on the right side going south on Military. Walk
towards the bridge and you will see where they have cut back the reeds. As you walk towards the water you will see a path through the remaining reeds. follow it until you see an opening. Someone left some sand spikes for your poles. Good little spot. Can't really be seen from the road. I've done well on cut mullet and gulps normally I fish the incoming but fished the out going on my recent trip. Fish closer to shore than you might expect. Crabs can be a problem but that should be a moot point soon. I usually can cast net for bait right at this spot but sometimes I cast across from Johnsons bait and tackle about a 1/2 mile down the road.
Hope this helps.
As soon as you go down the embankment you can see the path through the reeds to the left. Nice secluded little spot. I like to stop after work ,but Friday I will be celebrating my permanent promotion to supervisor at the shipyard.Woo Hoo! I may try to make it out Saturday depending on the tide. I haven't figured out how to get to the channel yet, but I understand that the striper action is better in the channel.
