Snook along the beach haven't let us down this season
My passion for beach snook fishing goes back 25 years.
There have been good season and bad seasons. There have been great seasons. The past two years have been excellent.
Better than I expected.
We had a record cold winter in Florida and there were thousands of snook that were killed because of it. I wasn’t sure what to expect.
But I’ve caught snook every trip. In fact, my clients and I have caught and released 51 snook over eight trips. That’s not great, but it ain’t too bad!
My largest snook this season is a 27-incher. Most of the fish have been ranging from 19 to 24 inches. No matter the size, they’re all strong and feisty.
The fly has taken more than 5,000 beach snook over the years. And that’s a conservative guess!
I stay on top of the fish at all times during the season. I know where they are and where anglers will have the best shot.
