probably one of the most sought after fish in our local waters. Snook
can be caught year-round locally preferring warm, but not hot water. Our
local waters with vast back country, grass flats, and canal systems are
ideal territory; moving up the rivers during the winter months. Snook
will take a wide range of live baits, but prefer what is locally know as
the greenback. Plugs, jigs, spoons, and jerk baits work great for the
real sportsman. Generally, the size range is 3-15lbs, but Snook
weighing 20-30 are not uncommon.
A tropical species of fish Snook are largely confined to about the lower half of Florida. But in the warmer years they have spread pretty far north barring a freezing temperatures. Snook fishing can try the most seasoned anglers, this is one of the most elusive fish found in our waters and pound for pound the toughest. Snook have excellent vision and keen hearing due in large to the predominate lateral line that runs down both sides to the fork of the tail, thus giving them the local common name of linesider. There are many methods of snook fishing from poling around the flats to chumming the pot holes of mangrove lined shores in the back country. Snook fishing is by far the best at night as these hungry fish tend to be more active at night which can bring you catch average up considerably.
