The Catch
Grouper (Goliath)
Jack Crevalle
Snapper (Mangrove)

The past few weeks have provided the best snook fishing so far this year! I’ve been fishing quite a bit and the clients are very happy. The main keys to success have been to fish as early or as late in the day as possible, and staying in the clean gulf waters near the beaches and passes. As long as a good presentation is made, fish are likely to eat whatever you put in front of them, whether it be artificial lures, flies, or live bait.

Snook are the kings of light-tackle fishing in the backwaters this time of year. Along with 10-20 average sized snook caught on each half day trip, both the strength of our tackle, and the skill of the anglers are being tested by some very large specimens.

Aside from the snook, we are catching many mangrove snapper, and jack crevalle, and also a few redfish, grouper, and most recently some pompano.
