The morning started slower than I anticipated with little to no interest in the Moonwalker I was throwing.
With the help of Smart Fishing Spots, I was able to find some oyster bars which also happen to be where most of the bait was congregating.
I knew I was in the right spot, I just had to keep working to find the feeding fish.
There was just so much bait and mullet around me that I had to make my offering stand out amongst the rest.
The sun began to reach its peak which signaled the time to switch over to subsurface lure presentations.
I also saw some tailing redfish which indicates they’re feeding on the bottom.
In these situations, I feel most confident with the F.R.E.D. paddletail rigged on a 1/8 oz. Hoss Helix Hook 3/0.
Lo and behold, I reeled in my first ever snook on artificial lures!
We don’t get many snook up over where I call home.
So this was particularly special for me to catch a snook on an artificial lure and while I was wade fishing!
If you have the time, head out for a quick last-minute fishing trip.
