snook fishing

Merc with his Snook on his new subsurface bait, Strategic Angler Custom Lures Naia.

Wind, wind and more wind is what we are dealing with this week and last with Tropical Storm Eta still lingering out there right now. But even with the wind, we can still get out on the water and catch some fish. Fish the lee side of the lagoon and the inlet and you should be able to get into some decent fish. Plenty of trout, snook and a few redfish around. Also, we’re catching some flounder in the inlet and the lagoon. Live mullet and pilchards are great baits but topwater and soft plastics have been productive, too.

Be careful of the seas and the tides if you are drifting the inlets for snook around this tropical storm. The seas are big and volatile, and the tides are extremely strong. Under these conditions, even experienced captains can get caught off guard.
