Fishing in 2019 has been off to a great start. Its spring like weather that has made for an unseasonal bite for January. Our typical fishing this time of year consists of slower presentations. We use artificial baits and Shrimp, but with the warmer weather we are catching plenty of whitebait on the markers and bridges. As a result, Snook fishing in the creeks and docks has been great.

Getting Greenbacks has been key as of late, its really the difference maker to catching a bunch of Snook. As cold fronts come though, it will change the approach a little as fish will move deeper water. Areas of interest would be rivers and deeper creeks as they will hold more heat, but I don’t think the water temperatures will change enough to push the bait away nor the Snook.

If we start getting cold fronts one after another don’t be afraid to go to shrimp for bait. Typically, later this month the big Sheepshead begin to spawn, and the big breeders come to play. Targeting the wrecks and reefs that are throughout the bay will prove to be successful on those colder days. Tight lines.
