Dock Light Kayak Fishing

I have a lot of success catching snook of lights using Yo-Zuri Crystal Minnows and Blue Fox Vibrax Minnows. I'm curious as to what you guys use out there too?

    DOA CAL jigs and small flies on the flyrod always get the bites. Yo-Zuris work well but i cant afford to loose those high dollar lures lol

    I wouldn't recommend a +$10 lure while fishing around structure. Lures for dock fishing should be expendable. I have never heard of anybody using an inline spinner for anything except mackerel.
    My favorite dock lures are DOA shrimp, zoom flukes, and CALs. Glow colors especially work well.

    I'm interested in what color you all like to use for this type of fishing. I've been striking out left and right at docks and night fishing in general...

    DOA Cals rigged weedless or Charlie's viper mullet, DOA shrimp and as previously said glow colors work well, however lately I have been doing real well with darker colors

    Thanks for the help guys! According to you guys it looks like the D.O.A lures are the way to go. Going to stock up on those soon. Blue fox sure gets it done suprisingly to even though its a killer freshwater lure.

    **** has a really good deal on doa shrimp kits, they come with a variety of colors. I think it's like 120 bucks worth of shrimp. They have a terror eyz kit too.

    Today was the second time I have heard of people using dry flies for snook. It makes sense that they would be eating the insects that are attracted to the light. Just tied up a ridiculously large white adams, just need the weather to cooperate to try it out.

    DOA shrimp and cals do it for me. Not surprised with the inline spinners. Took my son our to choko outside islands and he schooled us on redfish using the bait. Made me a believer.

    zooms, finese, and storms on a 1/4 ounce jig head. Color doesn't seem to matter at night although guys I know only use pink.

    The docks with fish under em of course... Couldn't resist :)

    I have luck with the ones close to inlets and in the canals that lead into spillways. Also docks that are good ambush points with good water flow. Go at night and look for lights - especially green submerged lights.
