I have fished for snook since 1970. Back then snook were unpredictable. Even with live bait. However, true to their nature they prefer ambush points and very low tides. This may be difficult with lures. A fresh blue crab cut in half is irresistible. Just take off some of the pointed parts. Half a blue crab attracts just about any small bait fish which in turn attracts snook who eat both crab and the bait fish.I don't know what the issue is, but so far this summer I have seen tons of snook and have not been able to get them to bite any of the typical lures I have caught them on before. I don't know if I'm doing anything wrong but I'm tempted to start using live bait again just to catch some fish this is getting old.
Paddle tails, flukes, rapala, various fake shrimp.....Nothing. Was just out this morning and saw snook everywhere right on shore, caught some jacks on the paddletail but the snook were not interested at all what gives?
