Hey KOZ,

How many snook have you landed ? Biggest ?? Peferred technique/catch method ??? Tastes like ???? Based on all the great things `bout Snook I heard I was hard after'em.

Wild Bill & I saw 2 or 3 caught on live shrimp off Bokeelia pier over Thanksgiving - always a bridesmaid never a bride :(

Also hear they'll eat a yozuri ?!

Hey Jighead, What is West/Gulf Coast FLA regs on Snook ? Was open over Thanksigiving for Snook >28" and was a 1 or 2 bag limit ?? And hey did we need a Snook stamp there also to keep one :confused:

Dress warm & go fish,

Bucket,

If I understand right, its 26" - 34" in natural state(no messing with tails or anything).

Needed Snook stamp to keep or posses(like your hinting too me)...limit two per person per day.

Season closed Dec.15-Jan.31 and May,June,July & August(Gulf Coast adds extra month of May).

Found new spot but haven't been able to try it do to weather. On scouting trip,no one was catching do to weather. Will update when(if)I actualy catch something. :D

Tight lines,

Jighead

Hey Bucket
I have caught 4.5 so far down here.
2 on gold spoons in the surf near Sabastian
Inlet they were 29 and 32. 1 in Flamingo on a trip with a freind using Grasshopper Jigs.
That one was 27 inches but had to let him go, out of season in the park at that time of
the year. :( And the last one in the Indian River Jiging live shrimp wading in the river and casting near docks along the rivers edge. He was 26.
Penn 704z 20# test
The 1st time I tasted a snook it was great
it almost tasted like cod to me very lite flaky texture,never tasted a better fish.
And I guess I can tell you about the one I
caught in my cast net off the Melbourne
Beach Pier at 3 AM. One hot Summers night
looking for bait for in the AM.
Low and behold, thought I hit a very large school of bait fish when my cast net started
pulling me over the rail at the pier. He was 28 inches I happen to like that method best
of all.
:D :D
