The best activity is on high and out going tide. Rig pinfish on 4/0 circle hook under a float about 16" and cast at mangrove line. once you find the fish there are usally 4-7 with them. If the bite slows go to another island. Be kind to the undersized snook that has been a by-product of our fishing.
