Hey guys , I just moved here from NY not too long ago and just started getting my feet wet ( no pun intended ) wih fishing here.I moved to orlando and most of my fishing , so far, has been from around the bridge banks along the bee-line. Been catching alot of little trout and puffers ( yuck ) with a few small jacks and ladyfish throw in extra. Was wondering if thats all thats caught from around the bridges or is there something I havent been doing right. Mostly been fishing with live shrimp.Also been fishing the surf around Playalinda with mixed results .. mostly small whiting and bluefish. Also, anyone know of any good spots to castnet mullet ..I see guys using livies but havent really seen any schools that I could get to. Any help would be much appreciated. I look forward to learning from all of you and hopefully helping you guys out too once I get the knack of Florida fishing. Thanks alot.

If you wanna try something new, head out to Jetty Park in Port Canaveral. I've had pretty decent luck down there. Flounder, jacks, blues, spanish mackeral, the occasional cobia, sharks, etc. As far as castnetting bait goes, good luck with that.

Welcome to the board Rock Hopper try this link out it has alot of good info . You need to find out what it is you are going to target species wise and do a little home work. I know of lot's of places in the Indian River were live bait is available. You need to find some piers or bridges you can get out on and see whats there bait wise and is it within range of the cast net. Early Am is usually the best time.
