Hello:

I would suggest that you contact a bait and tackle shop in Florida or a guide. Here is a line to a fishing report:

Hello,

You will need to get a salt water fishing license in advance, if you plan to do this fishing. Living in Florida we see many different fish including game fish in the intercoastal waterways. The water can be brackish throughout these waters.

 

The fish that we see are redfish, or red drum, snook, Jack crevalle, flounder and sea trout are common intracoastal species.

 

The fresh Bait used that is very popular is shad or menhaden, cut squid, or shrimp. Some fisherman will use a shortailed shad lure, mud minnow lure or even with a grub tail lure. Snook like to stay against structures like bridges and pier pilings.

 

Using a fast action rod, 6-7' long with a spinning reel and 20 lb. test line works well for most of the fish I have mentioned. If you are fishing off a bridge you want a strong rod and about 40 lb test line. If going for flounder, then a 14 lb test line works well with finger mullet as bait.

Hello,

I see you have a subscription, but I am not sure how that works. My answer was different than the previous Expert and unless it is accepted I am not paid for the answer.

 

If you would like to check with Customer service, they can assist you so you can pay for the answer you are happiest with. You can reach them here: http://ww2.justanswer.com/help or(NNN) NNN-NNNNand I am sure they can let you know if you would have to pay for a second answer, or it that falls under your subscription.

 

I live in Fl. and am very familiar with fishing the intercoastal and those areas. The snook are great! Joan
