SNOOOOOOOOOOK!!! This may has been one of the best months of snook fishing I have ever had. The snook stocks that were decimated after the 2010 freeze has rebounded to an amazing fishery again. The number of snook in the passes and on the beach swash channels is as good if not better than before 2010.
The key so far to turning on the bite has been having white bait and close second is grass grunts and pinfish.
Big reds have been biting best on high tides on near mangrove islands, oyster bars and docks using cut pinfish. Nice size trout have been biting well too around grass flats and spoil islands near the passes.
For the thrill seekers out there, the silver kings are here. 100 plus pound tarpon are in good numbers on the beaches. We jumped our first two tarpon off Sand Key using cut shad. We got the best of these tackle busters with a few big jumps and runs before they broke off. This fisherey is good throughout the whole summer, with the best bite coming around the new and full moon.
