Snook, Redfish, Big Jacks In the Ten Thousand Islands

Posted on by Captain John

Fishing this month has been very productive. Reds, trout, snook and 20lb jacks have been cruising the flats on the outside and the middle bays. The unseasonably warm water has been a factor and we are actually fishing like its April.

Redfish have been the target on the tides with many being taken by jigs and Gulps rigged with weedless presentations fishing the edges of flats and oyster bars.

Snook have been becoming more prevalent now. They maybe a bit confused with the warm water but again fishing like it is spring has been productive. We started using top waters last week and have connected with snook up to 25″ but I suspect the big girls will be on the points real soon.

Trout have been plentiful but seems to light up only during top of the high tide.

Now lets talk jacks. The big boys are starting to prowl the flats and edges out front. 20 and 30lb jacks have been exploding like concrete blocks dropped from the sky. If you can catch up to them with light tackle and a skitterwalk you are in for a 30 minute fight. Spectacular! When hooking up in shallow water the jacks only have one way to go and that is long runs.

So lets go fishing.  March is booking up but there are some choice dates left. Give me a call or send a request and get set up on the light tackle experience you been wanting to enjoy.
