Seven Snook

This morning the skies were bright and the wind light, swinging to the southeast for the first time in a week. It was a stellar June day on the Florida flats.

I left the ramp just before 7Am, and poled the Adios southward to try some new water. Things were slow until the tide turned around 8AM. But once theĀ  flood pushed along the edge of the sandbar, things change. Schools of spotted sea trout showed up to chow in the current, providing steady action for over an hour.

After that things went quiet. Time to move on. Poling northward, I visited a few spots, without a single bite. Eventually I got lucky. Over a grass bed, I found a bunch of snook. Man, it was fun. Love it when that happens. Using a Scott 6wt. a white deceiver, and a 20 pound tippet, I caught seven nice snook in less than 24 casts. Great day!
