I am going to be there for a week at the end of may. I'm just wondering what will be inshore then. I do plenty offshore here and don't care to bother with a charter. Just would like to know of any place I could possibly catch a snook or permit mainly. Thanks in advance.

Cast a green yo-zuri crystal minnow at the cypress in the ICW for snook and drift a 1/2 crab in Deerfield inlet for permit. If your not taking a boat may I suggest a drift boat or charter out of Hillsborough inlet and fish the 3 reefs for snapper,grouper and maybe a dolphin or 2. Swordfishing off the Pompano bch. pier is a lot of fun too just south of Boca. Used to catch a lot of Peacock bass in the inshore waterways till folks started putting up fences. :hoppingmad

If you have time make the trip to Jupiter Inlet its the hottest snook spots in so. florida , its about 40 min. north of Boca on I-95. I think snook season is closed then so check with the locals before taking one to the house. I lived in Palm Beach Gardens for 18 yrs and it was nothing to catch and release 25-30 fish a day

.

Good luck

Thanks for the info. I've caught most anything that can be caught offshore, I mainly want the species inshore and don't want to paysomeone to take me fishing. I won't keep any fish more than likely anyway so don't care about the season, would just like to catch a fish I haven't caught before. Never thought about a peacock, but that sounds awesome, do they getany big ones?

If my memory serves my correct most of the pecock bass will be in the 2 to 5 lb range.Always wanted to fish for these before i came to milton but never had the chance. In 98 when i left So. Florida they had not made it that far north in the roadside canals systems but i hear they are now.
