Snook-Nook Fishing Report
Inshore fishing has remained quite productive here in Stuart and Jensen Beach, just be sure to grab the sunscreen and have some cold waters to combat the summertime heat. August will provide anglers the opportunity to battle some of the biggest inshore gamefish of the year; Snook, Tarpon and Jack Crevalle as we approach the fall mullet run. Snook fishing has remained steady around the St. Lucie Inlet still, plenty of big breeders are still being caught fishing live Croakers. Docks on the east side of the St. Lucie River in the Sewalls Point area has provided anglers some steady action as well. The causeways in the mornings and evenings have been holding Snook as well. You can fish live Croakers underneath the fenders or if you want to go with artificials, pitching swimbaits such as the No Live Bait Needed paddle tails or artificial shrimp around the shadow lines in low light conditions are some of the best options. Snook season opens up September 1st so be sure to practice safe catch and release practices until then.
