Beaches DOA C.A.L. 3 inch shad in pearl and glow holographic best colors to consistent hook ups. The snook are very active early in the morning and late afternoon and well into the night. Average size of the snook has ranged from 2 to 20 pounds. Heddon spooks worked in a walk the dog brings plenty of surface explosions, the snook are very aggressive on the flats.
Work pot holes and bait schools for best results.

DOA Bait buster in green back and pearl worked near the bottom work great as well, morning and late afternoon best time to target the tarpon. Outgoing tide provides best action as well look for rolling fish as clues to work baits.
Grass flats are holding a wide variety of fish at sunrise when waters are cool. Snook, trout, jacks, snapper, and lady fish are all present. Live shrimp, greenies and jigs under a popping cork, will get your rod bent. DOA C.A.L. 3 inch shad in pearl and glow gold rush belly on a 1/8 ounce jig head great set up for consistent hook ups.
The mangrove shorelines, docks and channel pilings have been holding nice triple tail. Live shrimp or small greenies pitched in the tripletail vicinity will get you hook up.
