Seasonable weather and east winds prevail in south Florida, humidity has been low making for excellent fishing weather. Hopefully fall keeps this trend and the fish keep putting a bend in the anglers rods.
The Snook fishing great in the back bays and canals, using live baits like greenies and mullet on circle hooks free lined near structure and and channel edges. Artificial lures like DOA C.A.L. 4 inch jerk baits in pearl and Holographic glow rigged on a 5/0 hooked rigged Texas style excellent for working shallow water and mangrove edges. Jig heads in 1/8 ounce great tactic for deeper holes and drop offs for snook. The Snook are active early morning and evening fro best results. The average size of the Snook has been 2 to 15 pounds.
The Tarpon fishing is another option for anglers looking for drag screaming action. The Palm Beach inlet and back bays are full of Tarpon willing to take a live shrimp free lined with the tide. DOA C.A.L. 3 inch shad in pearl and glow gold rush belly rigged on a 3/8 ounce jig head excellent weapon for the silver king. When targeting the Tarpon fish the outgoing tide for best results. The average size of the Tarpon has been 5 to 50 pounds.
The Jacks are also prevalent in the local area, these fish are very aggressive and will take just about anything you have to offer them. Sheepshead, Snapper, Gag Grouper, black drum and Lady fish will also put a bend in your rod, the key is to find bait and you will find the fish.
