I had heard that snook were stacked up on the beaches. Well i saw firsthand today its true, around the Venice pier anyway. Got there around seven this morning and you could see like 20 nice snook at any given time. I usually fish Eljobean but I liked this much better. Caught 3 nice snook on pins, some whiting and somes mangos. You could see all kinds of fish in the water. It was a blast. My son is down from NC and he had a great time also. He likes the gulf much better than the atlantic.
