The Snook Bite Continues

Wow. The snook bite continues. It’s wild out there. Schools of them cross the bar on a rising tide, practically milling around your feet.  You can look into the water and see upwards of twenty at time. Amazing. They are not huge, but they are aggressive, slamming streamers and sliders. I landed ten in short order.

Even though this fish are well under ten pounds, twenty pound tippets are in order. Snook tear up mono fast. Typically you have to retie after every fish. White Deceivers worked well, especially with an erratic retrieve. But so did silver sliders waking across the top. Next time I’ll try poppers.

Dave Bell tells me these snook spawned on the full moon, which helps explain their sudden arrival. But it also indicates that the tight snook regulations of   recent times have paid off. Lets hope, they all grow large!
