unless your fishing sebastian inlet i would forget the jig down here. Go with live shrimp or mullet.
bout those lures. i witnessed a friend of mine who knows lil to nothing catch and release an undersize snook on a live shrimp. .still havn't been successful with the lure. any tips on fishing these? not even a bite yet. thanks
What area do you fish for snook? You do not have to give your spot away. If we knew what area and structure you fish at can help the type of lures to use.
i fish on top of a bridge. usually less hangups for me . i try to cast under the bridge or near the piling , found a few large snapper that way, just got a second pole so i can leave it in the water while i use this lure. i also have been going at night, trying to go an hour b4 incoming high tide, i also catch a few large pinfish (i read that snook also like these) how do i hook these. i read through the lips and i cut their "pins" off .
but no bites. this is my normal setup which i normally use , i found pretty effective for snapper. penn 750, 6'6 ugly stick .20 lb. line tied to a bimini to a swivel with a palomar with usually a 3 oz egg sinker weight to hold bottom b4 the swivel and then 2'6" 40lb leader 1/0 circle hook and a live shrimp. For snook. i was trying same rod and reel. 20lb line.bimini to no name knot to rapala knot on a 1 1/2 or two ounce hawktail ,40lb leader . no weight. i cast up current let it hit bottom and retrieve slow and steady. and........
no snook. and my buddy feels like king of the earth with the snook he caught using the snapper setup i described earlier(which i showed him)
