The Inshore fishing has been full of action for anglers targeting Snook. The Snook continue to gather in our inlets and deep channels. Anglers are catching double digit numbers of the Snook averaging 10 to 25 pounds. Live baits worked on the bottom will produce strikes but catching snook on artificial lures is more gratifying and takes much more skills set. DOA Lures like DOA cal 4 inch jerk and DOA Cal 5.5 jerk on a jig 3/8 ounce jig head in bayou tiger or gold and glow produce big fish and steady action. Snook action is great around mangrove shorelines on the falling tide, top water plugs and DOA shrimp or DOA cal weedless produces great results.
The Tarpon action has been great on the beach and inside the ICW for anglers looking to tango with the silver king. Look for rolling fish and present a live bait or jig in the area were fish are rolling. The Tarpon have ranged in size from 10 to 70 pounds. Always remember to bow down while a Tarpon is jumping to avoid the break offs and hooks pulling out. Live baits free lined along channel edges and along docks and mangrove edges also great tactics to hook the silver king. Top water plugs and DOA 4 Inch Jerk baits in pearl or holographic entice many tarpon to feed.
Peacock action has been outstanding and anglers are enjoying not stop action whether using shiners, artificial lures or fly. The peacocks are very aggressive from sun up to sun down and the sight fishing for these colorful beauties, will get your heart pounding. Sight casing to peacock bass on beds and along shorelines gets anglers very excited and becomes an addiction once they feel and see the power of these fish.
Well that is the report for the past week hope you all enjoyed. Remember you cant catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines! Capt. Craig Korczynski, PhlatsInshoreFishing.com, 561-644-437
