East bay advice

Good morning all. I just picked up a 19’ bay boat. I am wanting to go back out and relearn the East Bay region for trout and Reds. I grew up fishing East bay, but haven’t been out there since well before hurricane Ike so I’m pretty sure all of my old spots are washed out. I’m looking for any advice on where to start, what to look for, and types of bait that are most effective. Growing up all we used were jig heads with red shrimp/chartreuse tails.

Look into Reef Recon on the Troutsupport website. Best money you will spend on something to help you know where obstructions, reefs and guts are. Anything that might have moved since you were last there or since GPS mapping last actually verified its location many, many years ago, is spot on in Reef Recon

The reefs have changed dramatically since Ike. Lots of them were rebuilt using river rock. I think the ones with live oysters will be your best bet.

tarpon ??

your best bet is to go back to what you knew years back. reefs have changed but are still in close proximity to before. go do what you know and read the water while out, fishing bait slicks etc. the best way to relearn is time on the water. the white PVC poles are the reefs to drift open water and the bayou mouths, points etc on the shore for shallow.
