Inshore- Plenty of rod bending action inshore ladyfish and jacks will make up the majority of the catches however don't be surprised to see a few pompano mixed with the ladyfish and jacks. Live shrimp under a popping cork or on a jighead will be the ticket for these fish. For the folks that want to use lures bounce a 1/4-3/8 oz goofy jig or D.O.A. shrimp along the bottom. For those of you looking to catch snook, fishing at night around docklights and bridges will produce the most and best bites. Most of the snook will be undersize, fish larger baits around the bridges for a better chance at bringing one home for dinner. Slot size is 28''-32''. If you have any questions on which lures will work best for snook swing by the shop and I'll be happy to point you in the right direction.
Surf/Pier- Shark fishing along the beach remains strong. Any type of fresh bait rigged with an 8/0 and up circle hook with a wire or cable lead and 10' of 150lb shock leader will get the job done. Don't bring a gun to a knife fight, make sure your tackle is equipped to handle shark fishing. Sharks do have teeth and will bite you if you play around with them trying to get the hook out. Cut the line right above lead and get the shark back in the water as quick as possible.
