St Lucie River Snook and Flounder
This was back on 11/14. My buddy and I redeemed ourselves after almost sinking the truck at the ramp.:grin Conditions were windy, and the river looked like chocolate milk, but we were determined to catch some fish. The outgoing tide was just starting, and action was good right off the bat. My buddy caught his personal best flounder(23") right after breaking off a nice snook next to the boat. Not long after, he caught and released his personal best snook (a hair under 28" :banghead). His first snook and flounder hit live target swim baits, and his last snook was on a live shrimp under a cork. I hadn't had a bite while he was catching these fish. I blame working the trolling motor and anchor.:wink After tying on a bucktail jig and working it along the bottom, I managed to catch and release my personal best snook(over 43"). After chasing it around with the trolling motor not knowing what I had, we couldn't believe what emerged from that muddy water. I have submitted the pic to several mags, but none have posted it online. I assume it's because the file size is too small(cell phone cam). I figured I'd at least post it here. Anyone have an idea of weight? I am 6ft 200lbs for reference. Tight lines!
