Excellent Snook Fishing


This past week has been very busy and so has the snook bite. Im getting all my snook on live pilchards netted early in the morning in 20ft of water. The snook have been in the passes, docks and deeper mangrove shorelines. I am live chumming quite a bit to get them going, and then its all she wrote. Most of the fish have been good size averaging 25" with some fish pushing 40". I have got one around 10lbs every trip this week. Redfish have all been starting to show up, most of them are in the 20-23" range with one fish this week over 30'. The trout are still around but not in great numbers and I have not been targeting them that much. The only fish missing is the tarpon, but they have been showing up since last week. This week Im going to finally fish for them with more favorable tides. I still have some days open so lets get on em.
