How Would I Catch Snook, Redfish or Bass in Brackish Water?

Dear Captain"How Would I Catch Snook, Redfish or Bass in Brackish Water?"

Hi Pamela,

If I were targeting those exact species -- snook, redfish and bass in brackish water ponds, the two lures that I would use that would give me the ability to catch all three would be:

  1. 1/8th to 1/4 oz. Spro Bucktail Jig in white, and another in a dark color like black with some gold.
  2. Bill Lewis Rattletrap 1/2 oz. in the colors of Gold Black-Back, Purple or Glow.

If I were to use live bait I would use a Creek Chub, Finger Mullet or Crayfish. They all work well.

Try it and let us know how you do. There should be some Tarpon in those brackish water ponds!
