South jetty: Here is pretty much the same scenario: Snook and redfish on the incoming tide along the jetty and rock shoreline on all live baits. Most of the snook are smaller but there is a good mix of slot snook to be had. On the beachside of the jetty there have been pompano and black drum caught on shrimp and sandfleas when the water is clean. Also, goofy jigs are producing some pompano. Outgoing tide at the tip is all about the black margates, sheepshead and jack crevalle. Cut bait is doing the trick for them.
Catwalk, south side: Incoming tide is still producing nice sheepshead around the pilings for those fishing cut shrimp and live fiddler crabs. Black margates are also in the mix of things. Not much else over here.
T-Dock area: Here, things have picked up. Anglers are catching small snapper of different varieties on cut baits around the dock pilings. Incoming tide and the first of the outgoing are producing nice snook on all live baits. Boaters have been doing well, but also the shore anglers are catching their share as well. Spanish mackerel and jack crevalles are around for those folks fishing small jigs and silver spoons on both tides.
Surf area, both side: If you can find clean water during high tide, pompano, whiting and lack drum are being caught on both sides of the inlet. The south side is the better bet due to deeper water. Sand fleas and fresh cut shrimp are doing the trick on these species. Just for fun, small bonnet head sharks are being caught in the area south of the inlet.
That's it for this week folks. Things are changing, spring is coming, and the fish know it. Grab bait, get out to your favorite spot and possibly catch some nice fish.” — Snookman
