    Been a while - Sarasota Area Wading Report

    Summary of my snook honey hole so far this summer..... Seeing ALOT of fish, not the usual size from the past years (fishing here pretty regularly for past 3 years), however, numbers. Tonight I slipped out with forum member Fatsnook. We entered the water around 430, only to be greeting with a good thunder boomer. We took shelter in the sticks, waited 10 minutes and the storm passed over. Bait everywhere, just a lack of predators. End result was not too bad, just not as good as I had anticipated. 6 snook, 2 going over 28", 1 fat bluefish, 1 flounder, and a few trout. Tonight (I try to keep records) was my 75th snook on artificial this year at this particular location (76th according to record keeping).

    6 snook with 2 over 28"? Sounds like a good evening to me. Awesome job man.

    What's your go-to artificial bait if you don't mind me asking. I usually stick to gulp and the z-man paddlerz but want to try something new. Thanks

    Last night hit it again with my buddy JP. Slow. Ended up with 5 snook, all between 18" and 20" at best. Puts me over 80 on arti this year. Goal is 200 in 2013! Largest is a 35" - looking for that 40"!
