Snook on Fire

Boca Grande - Saltwater Fishing Report
Today I had a customer that wanted a full day's trip to target Snook and redfish. I met Allen at the boat ramp as the sun was coming up. It was a very short trip to the flats that I was going to catch bait. Greenbacks came easy as I made about 5 cast with my 8" cast net. These were very good greenies. We were done in under 20 minutes, and were off to the first spot.
The first spot was a new area. It had a sandy bottom nest to an island that dropped down to a grass flat. This spot was loaded with Snook. Most were over the sand and several were out over the grass. We caught 36 Snook and 4 Redfish before 1030. The Redfish were all over the grass and small fish.
Allen caught his first Redfish here also. We moved to a dock to target larger Snook, but the current was ripping. Allen caught his first Gag grouper there. The open water was full of ladyfish and small Spanish mackerel. What a great day of fishing this was.

Boca Grande Fishing Forecast:
The kings should be moving past our area just off shore. The Snook will be moving off of the beach and into the rivers.
King Mackerel, Spanish mackerel, redfish, Snook, trout, snapper and grouper.
