Live baits and artificial lures produce strikes. The average size of the snook have been from 5 to 25 pounds. Sight fishing for snook is a blast and can easily make an angler tremble and knees buckle, as nerves take over, this is what fishing is all about.
Mangrove shorelines and seawalls have been producing great black drum action. Black drum rely on scent, anglers using shrimp, clams, and crabs have best results, but jigs and flies also work. The key to drum fishing is patients and great vision these fish blend in well with there surroundings. The average size of the drum have been 5 to 40 pounds.
Fresh water action largemouth bass on Lake Okeechobee has been great along grass shoreline and grass patches fish are averaging 3 to 7 pounds.
