    That is a good area for sheepshead, pompano, spanish, and blue fish during different times. If you wanna catch trout, reds, and snook, there are a lot better places to fish on LBK. There are several spots that gave wading access as well as kayak launches.

    I didn't day you couldn't catch snook there. Along the beaches and the pass are good during summer. But there are better places than new pass around Longboat Key.

    I work part time out at they key club there right where you are talking about fishing. People have been doing well on snook, pompano, black drum, flounder over the past few weeks.

    Snook have been eating silver spoons, whitebait, pins and shrimp. Good outgoing current and a pinfish seem to be only thing catching any snook with any size to them. Fish there at sunset, I always do best then.

    Jighead with shrimp been doing well for the other fish.


    goodluck bro

    New Pass in the 80's was a snook mecca and if you put in your time you could get a trophy fish. My buddies and I used to wade off of dog beach and catch monster snook on white buck tail jigs. I recall catching atleast 2 myself that went over 30 lbs. Many fish near 20 lbs......you could count on the fish eating that last hour before dark.....
    For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen
