The snook bite is pretty good at the inlets this week. Live pogies, pilchards, greenies and majorra are the top live baits to try for them. Along the beaches, shark, tarpon, jack and king mackerel are striking slow trolled live baits. For the tarpon and jack, 60 to 80 pound test leaders and a VMC 7/0 circle hook work best. For the kings and sharks you will need to add a short piece of wire to this rig.
On a side note, my wife and I are vacationing in the Keys this week and the yellowtail snapper bite has been on fire leading into the recent full moon. We’ve limited out everyday on 15 to 20 inch fish. Next we’re going to try for bonefish and tarpon. We’ll see how that goes and report on it next week. While we are away, Captain Justin is holding down the fort and running charters each day. If you would like to get a trip with us please give him a call at 321-505-8217. Let’s go catch your next memory!
