Snook and Redfish

Posted on by Captain John

The Ten Thousand Islands are full of Snook and Redfish. The bite has been very consistent therefore its time to start booking your trips for the upcoming season. I am already getting booked for the Holidays so don’t wait.

Snook have be very active in the mornings and evenings easily crashing top waters like Rapala Skitterwalks and later in the morning crushing suspended lures. As the water cools we will see more action on the flats and dark bottom.

Redfish have been active all day when there is good tide movement. The belly crawlers have been cruising the hard bottom island edges and just cant resist a well placed offering. The oyster bars have also been very productive for redfish using soft plastic with rattles embedded in them. I will have a short video showing how to rig your soft baits using a rattle. We will use very light tackle for the reds.

We will be also on the lookout for big jacks. Changing tackle we will be ready with a little stiffer rod for these guys. You will be surprised when a jack crushes the top water. Be ready for a 20 minute fight on light tackle.

Seatrout have jst started showing up. Jigs tipped with shrimp and suspended Rapalas with bet an eager strike. These fish have been ranging from 15 to 25 inches and are great fun on the 10lb light tackle.

I specialize in light tackle and fly so lets get a trip booked now before choice dates and tides are booked up.
