    hey guys,
    Very new to this causeway fishing. Is there a normal expectation following tropical weather when fishing in North ORMOND in the back water and Tomoka state park.
    Thanks for any advise. Best baits, best conditions following rising waters, etc.
    Hoping to score some dinner!

    I always like live shrimp, i think they are the best for many different styles of fishing. That or fresh dead or frozen shrimp, or live bait fish. I like to fish the bottom or the surface at causeways. My go to is a live bait on a small circle or "offset baitholder" hooks that are smaller. I run about a 4-5ft leader to a swivel with the lead on the main line. I use the smallest lead i can to keep it on the bottom. Ive also had luck with the berkley gulp shrimp on jig heads too! Flounder love those at bridges it seems. I've caught big fish on some small hooks. Definitely use a little heavier tackle so you dont get broken off on the structure, as you're going to want to be fishing the structure and be able to pull the fish away on hook ups. I have caught red fish, mangrove snappers, jacks, and a tarpon at bridges but i know snook are commonly found too. You can trying bouncing a buck tail jig off the bottom for them or even a flounder.
