April has arrived, the past week has offered plenty of sunshine, but super high tides and dirty water made fishing tough at times.
The snook bite has been great targeting mangrove shorelines, channels and docks. Live mullet and pinfish work great as well as DOA C.A.L. 3” shad tail in Arkansas Glow. Snook are schooled up at times making for nonstop action. The bigger snook have been located around dock pilings and channel edges DOA Terror Eyz and Bait Busters great lures to target big line siders.
Tarpon action has been hit and miss due to the sporadic weather we have received. The silver kings can be found in channels near inlets and along mangrove shorelines. Live mullet or shrimp free lined on the outgoing tide provides great success.
The black drum fishing continues to thrive, anglers can expect great action using live shrimp on channel edges and near structure. The drum school up at times many of the fish range from 3 to 10 pounds.
Freshwater fishing the largemouth bass bite has been great in local canals and lakes using a DOA C.A.L. 8” finesse worm’s and a DOA C.A.L. 4” jerk baits rigged seedless. The peacock bass are thriving along bridge pilings, sea walls and dock pilings. DOA Terror Eyz or live shiners provoke the strike.
