In the last week we fished this area several times and had hook ups consisting of Reds, Snook, and Lady fish.

When fishing the heavily condensed grass areastop water weedless baits are most productive.
Fish the incoming tide working top water weedless over the grass beds. The reds will bite best near peak high tide. Look for the jumping mullet and youll find the reds nearby. Tail wakes are visible from afar, but get too close and spook wakes will be inevitable.
Use an oar and quietly paddle within casting range of the tail wakes. Present your bait beyond or aside and retrieve slowlyusing jerk and sink methods.
Use gold glitter colors when the sun drops and root beer color in full sun.
The water temperature is 88 on top and 85 on bottom, making it difficult to find snook. However, troll around the mangrove edges closest to open water (nearest skyway) and youll pull a few from the deeper and cooler holes or pockets beneath the overhanging mangroves.
Chumming live bait (minnows and pins) will work best over sand bottom. Trying to chum over grass will only give the bait a secure hiding spot within the grass. The trick to chumming is to keep the bait near the boat, hence, chum over sand bottom and the bait will use your boat as the hangout. In addition, drop a bag of frozen chum to the bottom after live chumming and watch as thousands of bait fish join the live chum that you tossed in earlier.
