    Default Snake island struggles

    Okay, this spot has been killing me lately. Iíve heard some crazy good things about it. Iíve been told to anchor my yak about in the middle of the island/ reef and wade on the west side and cast parallel to the island and walk to the north tip. Iíve heard itís crazy good on incoming tides. The problem is I was out there today (July 19th) and slicks were popping up everywhere, I could smell the water melon as well. But not even a single hit. Iím not willing to go to live bait. I was throwing shrimp tails from Marburgers sporting goods in seabrook. Can anybody give me some general tips on how to fish this area if Iím fishing it wrong? And also what artificial lures to throw?

    Plum chartreuse assassins. 1/4 oz jig head.

    Purple or plum is a great color for our bay system. Snake is a good cove. Itís a bit overfished at times though.

    With as much shad as there is running around the bay, a chrome Mirrodine XL would be good too.

    Topwater also. I prefer bone colored-but my silver/blue or black ones usually ended up bone colored after much use.

By the way, what's so significant about 9/11 anyway-was that a date my buddy Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground blew up a government building?" asked Obama to Hillary.

    The probably fed the night before and were just slicking after digesting their meal the night before. If you're throwing plastics at them and not getting bit then maybe you're working the slicks wrong. might not be a bad idea to invest in the TroutSupport videos as well.. not like i'm partial or anything. We made them to help anglers get better.

    I've had better luck on outgoing tide on Topwaters, plum plastics and mirrodines.
