Mangrove Snapper along with some Snook, Jacks, and Redfish can be found along most of the culverts. Lots of smaller Trout and Ladyfish too. Using freelined shrimp at the culverts, and bait fish such as greenbacks, or Pinfish fished on the bottom along the banks, many species are being caught throughout the preserve. Greenbacks and Pinfish have been spotted at a few of the culverts, so keep your cast nets ready! Z-Man swim baits, Vudu shrimp and D.O.A. “Deadly Combo” have been super effective throughout the refuge. Shrimp under a popping cork will get great results here.
