It feels like spring has finally arrived. The poinciana blossoms have begun to show and that is a surefire “visual” cue that the Snook have arrived for the spring spawn. This is the time of year when you catch seriously big fish. Although we had a longer winter than normal, it was mercifully mild for Florida. Snook season was permanently closed for three years to let the population rebound after our horrible freeze several years ago that all but wiped them out. Now there is a lot Snook everywhere and there is a lot of slobs too.

This is the time of year when what I call “Ghost Snook” come into the estuary to spawn. They are huge offshore fish that are too big to stay in the estuarine system and hang out in big water on nearby reefs.

A lot of these fish are way over slot but what an experience. It’s not uncommon to hook up with fish over 45 inches in length. The next four months are the creme de la creme of Snook fishing in Florida. Whether you are in Marco, Sarasota, St Pete, Tampa, or right here in Ft Myers, this is your year to land that “Snook of a lifetime”. Look me up and we’ll make it happen
