Snook fly?????

OK, my friend and I have been fishing this spot on the beach on the NW corner of St. Croix for Snook at dusk. He is fishing with a spinning rod and a 4" Blue/sliver Rapalla and nailing the fish. These fish lie in the dirty water no more thsn 20-30ft. from the beach.

I have been throwing all kinds of flys at these guys and I can't get a hook-up. I have tied some nice baitfish immataions and no luck.

Any one have any fly suggestions in this particular situation???

Could be action.... have you tried a popper, slider, gurgler, or something that pushes some water?

Yes, if they can't see it, let them 'feel' it.

Fish in murky waters tend to lose their inhibitions (even bonefish are suckers in a mud) so something that kicks up a disturbance would be my choice.

A diving baitfish gurgler was going to be my next try. The stuff is sitting here on the table ready to go. I bet this might be the ticket!
