Our fishing guide, “Snookman” Wayne Landry reports the cleaner and warmer North Jetty water is bringing back the baitfish and turning on the mangrove snapper bite. A lot of small snappers are coming over the rails along with a lot of keepers. Wayne says many anglers are getting their limits—5 per person. The snapper are hitting cut baits and any small baitfish you toss out. There’s been a few cubera snapper caught –around 12-15 lbs —on live and cut baits, along with Atlantic spadefish, lookdowns and red drum favoring very small jigs, live shrimp and majorras. Wayne reports a 31 lb cobia caught on a bucktail and tons of big tarpon swimming around the jetty from up the beach. Spanish mackerel, the stars or the last few weeks, have said “adios”!
South Jetty fishing is still slow, but a few snook and mangrove snapper are possible in the cleaner water.
The Surf folks will find glass minnows in clean water with tarpon, snook, jacks and small sharks chewing on them. Whiting and croakers are biting cut bait and fish bites.
