The Inshore fishing is fantastic all through the Icw, do to the abundance of mullet that has migrated to our area. The Snook fishing is fantastic along sea walls, mangrove shorelines and bridges. Early morning and late afternoon is the best time for great Snook action. Artificial lures provide anglers with explosive reaction strikes as lures are worked near bait pods. Live baits will also keep your rod bent, but the trick is to make you bait stand out form the others. The Snook have been averaging 2 to 20 pounds.

The Tarpon fishing is also red hot, along mangrove shorelines and channel drop offs. The Tarpon can be located as they roll on the surface and bust bait pods with a vengeance. Top water plugs and other artificial lures work great, but its hard to beat a live mullet free lined near rolling fish. The Tarpon are averaging 2 to 30 pounds.

The seawalls and docks are great areas for locating Jacks for those anglers in search of a tug a war. The Jacks are schooled up, ambushing bait schools as they migrate down shorelines. The Jacks will hammer any live bait and artificial lure that crosses there path. The average size of the Jacks has been 1 to 15 pounds.

Well that is the fishing report for the past week, hope you all enjoyed. Remember you cant catch them from the couch so get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines! Capt. Craig Korczynski PhlatsInshoreFishing.com,561-644-4371
