ESTERO BAY kayak fishing

I am going on vacation in Estero in July and the house we are staying at backs up to a canal leading to estero bay. I plan on bringing 2 of my kayaks to fish. Any tips would be great. I saw a bridge on the map that looks close so I plan on fishing it some but want some input on what I can catch and where. Thanks

we used live shrimp cast up as tight to the mangroves as you can get them. rigged with just a single hook.
others will rig them 12 - 18 inches below a floating popper, for trout and reds and snook quiet little cuts without much traffic is what you want. if you fish the bridge a fish finder or pompano rig down deep is what you want. keep it simple.
