Fort Desoto post hurricane Irma
« on: September 11, 2017, 08:05:48 PM »
First of all, I hope everyone faired well during the storm. Being from NW Florida myself, i understand what these storms can do. My thoughts and prayers have been with all my fellow Floridians. Now that the storm has passed, Im looking for information on Fort Desoto. Me and my family will be camping there for a week at the end of the month and would love any info available on the condition of the area and water. Thank you for your help and godbless.

Get up at the break of dawn, and fish the passes and the beach for snook.  They will literally be right against the shoreline, just throw some artificials at them.   There are also two very good fishing piers in the park, just fish some live bait and reel them in.   early early morning will be best as the water temperatures are getting hot.

Thanks for the advise. I'm definitely hoping to catch a snook or two. Up here in the panhandle we have plenty of trout and redfish, but no snook. Been a bucket list fish for me for some time now. Hopefully my trout and redfish skills will translate to some successful snook fishin.

I use a silvery midwater yozuri that works pretty well. They will not shy away from a spoon or a jighead with a soft plastic. Early morning and night fishing are their primetime. Live bait use greenies

I was at there earlier this week. There was a good amount of floating grass on the flats. If you're going to use artificials, you may want to bring along a weedless set up. Tight lines!
