INSHORE- Snook fishing has been getting better and better. The linesiders are getting ready to stack up in the inlets, but before they do it is feeding time! The spring (now early summer, I guess!) mullet run is on, and the snook are taking advantage of the mass of food. Big swimbaits, flair hawks, and of course live mullet are a good choice for the snook. Inshore mangrove snapper and sheepshead fishing has been getting better. Try shrimp around the bridges for best results.
SURF/PIER- The snook have decided it is summertime and have showed up in the surf. Look for them cruising the first rough early and late in the morning. Throwing live shrimp, doa shrimp, or small white jigs should get their attention. Word has it the tarpon are cruising the beach as well. Keep an eye out for the big schools of jacks cruising the beach as well!
