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!

Quick guide to running with the Fall Migratory runs’

“A little early by a few weeks but soon to be here”

Because these fish at this time are out for the hunger of it and the sport with the water just filled with food. At times I have seen so many Mullet for so far and you could see as the swells came in the hundreds of little heads and tails wishling around and as a big fish would creep up from below and they would all at once like a wave in a stadium move and at night watching with shoreline light seeing huge silver sides envolping waves of white from all the mullet splashing up for as far as you could see with the darkness of the night sky in the back ground and the sounds of the fish “remarkable and unforgetable”.

February – Broward Boatless Fishing Forecast

Boatless Fishing Forecast

Well made it through the lull of January, this month things will definitely start to pick up Boatless fishing wise, End of February marks the start of Spring for our springaling fish.

Bait for this months will be the same as last, Ballyhoo, Google eyes, Greenies “Thread Herring” and some Mullet in small schools lulling around the shore.

What we should see being caught as the month goes on is Bluefish and they should be on the larger size, every few years we see the 12 to 15lbders move back north and lets hope this springs brings them through, everyone always likes catching the Big Blues. Pompano will start to show in better numbers and will be best caught to the south end of Broward, south of Port everglade that area is always best for the spring. Spanish mackerel will also start to show in better numbers. Snapper, Croakers, Whitting, Margates will be in the mix also.

December – Broward County South Florida Boatless Fishing Forecast

December is the month that begins our shorebound waning time before the spring run and things will slow some by the end of the month, but we will still see great catches this month and then again everything seems late so we may see the fishing good well into December hard to predict mother nature.

All the piers from the North to the South will see the chance to get nice size Cobia, King Mackerel and Bonita. Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish and some Pompano will be caught also.

The piers with rocky bottom should be producing Mangrove, Mutton, Dog snappers along with Margates. My suggestion for the snapper would be ballyhoo plugs fished on a typical bottom rig, with the ballyhoo moving in this month the muttons should be zeroed in on them. Another little tip is if you see a school of ballyhoo and its lingering around the jetty or pier, cast a bait out to the center of the school. I always find mutton snappers under the ballyhoo the snapper are feeding on any and all pieces that drop from predatory fish (Bonita, Kings and large Spanish Macks) that are feeding on them.

Inlets and the bridges around inlets should have Snook, Tarpon, and you may also get Sheephead or large Cuberra Snapper using a troll rite jighead with a large shrimp. Work the edges of the drop offs from the shore on the incoming and out going tide hour before and a hour after.

Bait along the coast will be small Pilchard, Sardines, lingering mullet and goggle eyess. Some of the piers may have some pinfish and now the ballyhoo will begin to move in thicker.

September – Broward Boatless Fishing Forecast

December is the month that begins our shorebound waning time before the spring run and things will slow some by the end of the month, but we will still see great catches this month and then again everything seems late so we may see the fishing good well into December hard to predict mother nature.

After Sandy we did have some issues with 3 of our Fishing piers, Anglins fishing pier has there tee closed at this time waiting on materials and should be fixed within a few weeks, Deerfield fishing pier suffered damage also on the tee and it is being repaired. Pompano Pier also has Tee Damage and should be open soon also. All Piers are open there is just certain area closures most being the tees but all should be back on track in no time. Talk about swells I don’t ever recall swells like the ones after Sandy in lauderdale by the sea area these things towered the pier.

All the piers from the North to the South will see the chance to get nice size Cobia, King Mackerel and Bonita. Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish and some Pompano will be caught also.
