Snook Tarpon Full of life in back bays
<p>Seasonable weather and moderate winds, this is the winter weather we all enjoy so much. The fronts have been tame lately, but I am sure our future holds brisk weather around the corner. I am very certain the north east anglers would love to be in our neck of the woods right now.
Inshore anglers, reports of tarpon in the icw and inlets on outgoing tide during the evening, produce fish from 20 to 60 pounds. Live baits produce best results, those who prefer artificial lures, jigs will get your reel a screaming.
The back bays and canals are teaming with snook from sun up to sun down along seawalls and docks. Live baits have been the key, look for the snook near the surface basking in the sun. Nigh fishing is also another option for those looking to avoid boat traffic. Pitching live shrimp near dock lights is a blast and its is for the whole family.
The grass flats are still full of the pesky ladyfish, but trout, redfish , pompano and snapper can all be found in depths of 2 to 8 feet of water. Live shrimp under a popping cork, or a bucktail jig tipped with shrimp produce fantastic results. Look for any sign of life while on the flats like manatees, dolphins stingrays and bait pods, all are great signals fish are near.
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! Craig Korczynski, PhlatsInshoreFishing.com
