    Excellent Pine Island Snook

    I had a very good weekend with snook on artificials in the northern part of PI Sound. Bokeelia angler Mike Craig and his buddy Dr. Russell from NC did all the catching using topwaters, Gulp Shrimp, and white paddletails.


    Mike's first hookup.


    Not bad.


    Russell tops him with a 29 incher.


    Mike keeps catching them a bit smaller.


    Great colors this time of year.


    Russell's best fish, a perfect 33 inch snook that took five minutes to land.


    This fish hit a white paddletail on an 1/8 oz. red jig head.

    This was the best snook fishing I've had all year. We caught them in a lot of surprising places when I wasn't really looking for snook. We also pulled in a handful of upper-slot trout.

    Nice snook action. Were most of the fish on the bushes or out in the deeper holes?

    Way to put 'em on the snook Capt.!
    Love it when they're all caught on artis.
    There is nothing in the world as expensive as that which the government gives away for "free."
