Trout and Snook bite stellar in Palm Beach
<p>Snook season is back in action February 1st and many anglers will be hard at work to bring home a snook for the dinner table. The beast action for snook has been near docks, seawalls and drop offs. Artificial lures and live baits all work for the snook but fly fishing is another great method to battle the linsider. Many of the snook are schooling up and offer double digit numbers of catches for anglers. Remember the slot size for the snook is 28 inches minimum and 32 maximum.
Trout still continue to produce stealer action, artificial baits like the bass assassin in green works great with a jig head. Live baiting for the trout is another option , chumming help to bring the fish off the bottom and produces more hook ups. Target grass flats, channels and deep hole for the best action. The average size of the trout has been 2 to 7 pounds.
The grass flats is full of live for anglers as well providing plenty of action for jacks, ladyfish, bluefish, drum, trout , snook and snapper. Artificial lures like a crank bait or jig worked near the bottom gets the drag screaming. Popping corks another great method for working the flats helps angler to see the strike and catch more fish .
Well that is the fishing report for the past week I 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
