if the surf is calm, you can wade in off the beach. just move a mile or so from the pass, the pass has hazardous currents and undertows. and there are multiple beach access points, north/east of pass. but chances are it will be too rough for the surf. if so from a boat, you can anchor on either side of the bridge itself, and throw jigs/tails around the pilons. a heavy jig head will most likely be necessary as the current rips thru there. or fish this area with bait. cold pass is a good area, and the bank/shoreline across from bird island.
the south shoreline of west bay has several areas to walk in from the neighborhoods, just north or east of the pass. good fishing there as well. you just have to drive around that area and explore.
