South Florida Snook & Jacks

Capt. Ross Gallagher and Capt. Chris Britton head out of Stuart in search of fall run snook and jacks along the inter-coastal canals and bridges. In this video we utilize deepwater swimbaits to swing baits through structure and topwater dog walkers to draw strikes from snook and jacks ambushing mullet.

 Swinging Swimbaits For Bridge Snook

Swinging Swimbaits In Structure

1. Cast well up-current of the target structure. Allow your bait to sink to the bottom while retrieving slack line.

2. Begin a medium speed retrieve while hopping the swimbait along the bottom with short rod tip twitches.

3. Allow the swimbait to work tightly to structure. Most strikes occur when your bait bounces off structure.

Topwater For Seawall Snook and Jacks Diagram

Casting Topwaters On Seawalls

1. Identify areas with schooling mullet near heavy structure. These bait pods can be located by finding surface disturbances or jumping mullet.

2. Place casts tight to structure, snook and jacks will use this to ambush mullet and strike aggressive.

3. Use a slow walk-the-dog style retrieve by using a steady rod tip twitch on a steady retrieve.

4. If a strike is missed, give a short pause then a speedy retrieve to trigger a strike.
