Summer snookin’



Just a quick report summarizing a week’s worth of fishing targeting primarily snook. Remember it’s catch and release only for now and please try to land and release snook as safely as possible , as this is breeding time for them. When fishing off a bridge or pier, always use a landing net to land the snook and use the net to release them as well.

Deerfield pier anglers have been catching some nice slot sized snook mostly during the times of dawn and dusk using big pilchards.

Same goes for surf fishing. Snook and other gamefish such as tarpon and big jacks have had busting bait schools right along the shoreline. Bait has been easy to load up on, and with a big friskie pilchard on a cricle hook, no snook is going to resist.

The boca inlet has also had some HUGE snook as well, many overslot. There have been some mangrove snappers also feeding on small sardines and live shrimp on a jighead but many inlet regulars haven’t been putting enough time into them. They ARE there, just have to look around.

That’s about it, sorry no pics though. My camera broke but now it’s fixed so next time I will have them.

Tight lines everyone!
