The weather has been superb, plenty of sunshine, happy fish and smiling anglers.
Snook fishing is stellar along mangrove shorelines, docks and seawalls. Top water lures, DOA C.A.L. 3” shad and live baits have been the main forage. Anglers have been catching three different species of snook, thee are four species total. The snook are also active along shorelines making for great fly fishing. The bite will stay strong as water temperatures continue to warm.
Tarpon continue to gather along channel edges and back bays. The main tactic has been live bait but DOA C.A.L. 3” shad tail glow / gold rush belly also trigger strikes. The inlets are holding bigger tarpon, live mullet freelined gets the drag screaming.
The intercostal waterway is teaming with big jacks, drum, snapper, mackerel, sheepshead and many other species. Jigging or live baits provide bent rods.
Freshwater action is great for largemouth along drop offs and grassy edges. DOA C.A.L. 4” jerk baits rigged weedless and small top water baits both work great. The clown knife fish and crappie have been teaming along seawalls and bridges.
Well that is the report for the past week hope you all enjoyed. Remember you can’t catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines!
