August can be a great time to catch some larger snook and redfish. The snook are holding around the passes as the summer spawn is under way. Bigger females are jumping on large pinfish during the fastest moving part of the tide. These gamefish are using the swift current to feed on bait getting flushed by. The concentration of snook along the beaches will hold until early October when they will make the transition toward Fall paterns. The large offshore breeder redfish are moving into position around jetties and nearshore rock structures where our west coast reds will spawn in September. Work the deeper waters with cutbait or big pinfish pegged with a weight to maintain the offering at the bottom.
