This all being said we had some reasonable success as we approach the Snook opener.I fished Monday with Mike Roberts from RI and we caught a fair number of of Jacks ,Blues and Ladyfish as well as some Trout and Shark bites.We also found some Snook but missed them. On Tue with Bob and Doriano and Jim Archer we caught a Tarpon on a 3 d minnow ,Doriano caught a Bull Shark and we caught 1/2 dozen or so small Snook on DOA Shrimp and 3D Minnows.In addition we caught some Jacks,Ladys and Blues. On friday we had a fair day with some Trout and the usual Jacks,Ladys and Blues as well as a few Juvenile Grouper and a bunch a sailcats. All the fish were caught on DOA Shrimp and 3D Minnows. This next week looks like the weather may create some problems but we will keep on trying .
