A lot of times the fish will be real tight to the pilings, usually facing the pilings and feeding off of them, so you may need to cast very close to the pilings. you may need to experiment with different lures that fall at a different rate, I like using bucktails, bassassasins and spoons.. sometimes you may need to jerk the lure violently to make it look irratic, sometimes just a few small twitches, sometimes you don't have to work the lure at all. If one piling isn't producing move to another, sometimes there are schooled up at just one piling. when the water gets cold like it is now, you will probally have to work the lure very slow. And always try to fish when the tide is moving
