Best chance at catching fish

I'm headed out to Aransas/Redfish bay this weekend with my 8 yo kid whose finally gotten the hang of his spinning reel. My background is fishing flies so still learning the ropes of live bait and plastics. Helluva lot to learn! Looking for any tricks of the trade this time of year that gives me the best chance at catching fish. Type of fish irrelevant to my 8 yo. What do ya'll think? Croaker with rattle weight? Shrimp under popping cork? I'm in an 18 ft shallow water bay boat. Also, where do I go? Just chase the baitfish?

Any info helpful and happy to report back after the week. Thanks.

Hit california hole area and use live shrimp or cut mullet and fish it around the most baitfish you can find in the area.

Yes there is a LOT to learn to get on fish regularly. We made an entire 8 hour training program in our videos showing anglers what to learn to look for and where to look for it. Our products are not 'watch the guy talk in the front of the boat' but actually show footage of what you the angler should see and look for, that also makes them great and interesting for kids. Even with the 8 hour start... there's still hours and hours of training to learn to become consistently effective... yes, it's frustrating and can be expensive without the knowledge. There are several ways to get that knowledge... long time on the water is one but not always effective, guides are a better choice and I recommend getting some time ... at least a trip a year with a reputable teaching guide that has good references, and I'd suggest over a four year period go with different guides during different seasons. I think the ultimate in learning it is combining it all, ... spend time on the water, get all the knowledge you can through magazines, podcast, videos, instruction, and taking trips with guides.

feel free to email me and I'll see if I can help you and your kiddo more for you're trip...
