How to fish for them from land
June 2 2005 Written by the Boatless Fisherman..TA

A pier is mainly where I have caught but a few times on beaches and jettys. Half of the cobia I have caught were surprise catches and the other half were sighted and caught fish. ……………….

The Thrill and Upset of snook Fishing
Snook fishing, one of the greatest adrenaline rushes of fishing. If you have never fished for snook before and happen to hook into one while fishing, then you have experienced the complete inadequecy of using the wrong tackle, at the right time, to hook the wrong fish. This fish can generate so much power in the first 30 seconds of being hooked that not knowing what it is you’ve caught and trying to stop it is almost futile.

Get the tide for Hillsboro Inlet Marina
Hillsboro Beach Inlet, There are three or so areas to fish.
The seawall at the bridge is one, where you can get Snook, Tarpon , Jacks, Mangroves and bait.
You then have the docks, where you can catch Snook, Tarpon , Jacks, Mangroves and bait also.
The ROCKS, which is the jetty on the south side beach you have to park at 16th and walk down the beach to get to this location it a hefty walk so pack light but the payoff can be good with Grouper, Snapper, Snook and bait also migratory and semi migratory Fish that is Pompano, Mackerel and Bluefish, I am not saying you can’t get these fish all year long, just at this southern point and further south, I just don’t find them in abundance.

Boynton Beach Inlet is a great place for bait, I always seem to be able to get mullet and pilchard, it also offers a variety of types of fishing and is a very productive fishing area. It is known for Snook fishing and numerous Snook anglers make it a for sure stop.
The mullet are found in the Boynton inlet and also North side Boynton Beach lagoon area.
Pilchard I always get at night in SW side of Boynton inlet bridge in lighted area, first light away from bridge in the inlet or in the daytime on the North jetty, Sardines on same side but back seawall.
South jetty of Boynton Inlet I find snook on the tide change live bait or artificial (jig, Doa,) Also, I have found them on Southside beach area. In addition you will find, on that same beach, bluefish, big grunts, spots and croakers and ocassional snapper.
North jetty of Boynton Beach inlet has mangroves down and snook on beach side, I do very well on the mackerel there in the fall and winter run on a chartreuse pompano jig tipped with shrimp also pompano can be had.
Seawalls of Boynton Inlet have sheephead at certain times of the year if you look you will see them if they are there.
South side back seawall of Boynton Beach Inlet has Tarpon, Snook, Moonfish, Mangroves and other smaller fish. For the Mangroves “use the sardines that are caught here for bait” For the moonfish “pieces of shrimp”, for Tarpon use live bait or large fish heads.
