Chris, Cerberus's post had info on how to find them regardless of where you are.
If you are looking for specific stuff in your area, El Jobean and the placida piers are good places to fish for snook from what I have seen. Early morning or dusk the time to go from what I've seen and what people have told me. As for bait, most like live shrimp or one of those DOA plastic shrimps then they usually put on an appropriaet amt of weight and let the sucker float down the water column toward or through the pilings of the pier. Hope this helps! Good luck.
