Snook and tarpon on the prowl
The inshore fishing for snook and tarpon has not changed much, early morning and late afternoon the bite turns on. Live bait's and artificial lures work great near shorelines and seawalls. The tarpon can be seen rolling on the surface be sure to stay quite and get in front of the fish for best results. Snook can be found basking in the sun ambushing baits as the current sweeps them through the area.
The seawalls and docks are full of sheepshead, willing to take live shrimp or fiddler crabs. The sheepshead are not really sought after that much, but not only do they taste great, they put on a great battle with light tackle. Sight fishing for these zebra looking fish can be a blast, most certainly with kids and novice anglers aboard.
Jacks and bluefish are also around and on the prowl, these feisty fish might not be highly prized, but they put up a great fight. The grass flats are still teaming with ladyfish, pompano, snapper and drum. Bucktail jigs tipped with shrimp will get your rod bent. The key is to locate bait schools and stay in depths from 2 to 6 feet.
Well that is the fishing report for the past week hope you all enjoyed. Remember you cant catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines! Capt. Craig Korczynski, PhlatsInshoreFishing.com, 561-644-4371
