It's slow... but also work your baits slow... There's been times I've come down turned on the big stadium light and seen tons of activity. If bait gets into the canals you can be darn sure the trout will follow.

I catch flounder year round in our canal working slow and bouncing along the bottom. Bulkheads have been producing sheepshead too!

I have caught some of my nicest trout in the winter, at night, under the lights. If you want to do it, go out about midnight with some trout killers, and you can slaughter them. Reds will go after them also.
