INSHORE- Lots of good snook fishing going on right now inshore. All catch and release for a few more weeks, but lots of fun for those looking to catch both quantity and quality snook. Hard to beat a flair hawk, Spooltek, or live mullet fished around the bridges at night on an outgoing tide right now. While the spawn is slowly winding down, just remember to take a little extra time and revive those big female snook, they are the future of our snook population. Still hearing some mangrove snapper reports inshore, as well as a small scattering of sheepshead and black drum.
SURF/PIER- Snook fishing remains the main game in town along the beach right now. Fish low light periods for best luck, and be sure to look for schools of baitfish for even better results. Still a few tarpon cruising around, and we should see even more tarpon as the mullet begin to trickle down the beach. Glass minnow schools should start to push out along the beach anytime, and with them will be a scattering of spanish mackerel, blue runners, jacks, and other assorted predators. When that happens the "bobber rig" and a clark spoon is a safe bet for good action!
Thanks For Reading and Good Luck this Weekend,
