Re­cent snook catches have found the fish are on the move. Sum­mer is ap­proach­ing and the fish are mak­ing their way to the spawn­ing grounds (passes). Many of them have been in shal­low wa­ter be­tween the spawn­ing spots and the spring spots. On the in­com­ing tide, the fish have been in sand holes with bar­ley enough wa­ter for most bay boats to ac­cess. Knowl­edge of the area is a must if you’re go­ing to try and ac­cess these spots or you might find your­self high and dry wait­ing on wa­ter. Big trout have been in the mix while catch­ing snook. Many push­ing the 25-inch mark. Tar­pon have been the hot bite in the south­ern part of the bay. Crabs for bait on the out­go­ing tide in the after­noon have been the top choice of the sil­ver king.
