    Captiva Snook

    Traveled over to Captiva Island this weekend from Stuart for the Floridians for clean water rally to stop the dumping from lake O. I Wanted to try to squeeze in some fishing while over there. Talked to some local guides and asked them what they thought about some good wading spots and a few tipped me off. Woke up sunday morning at 6:30 to hit the first light bite and it paid off. Found a beautiful Mangrove pocket and decided to give it a shot. No more than 10 casts later did this healthy 36 inch snook come up and smash my top water. In less than a foot of water which made it an awesome visual bite and a great fight on a 2000 sized reel. I ended up catching seven snook and one nice trout to end the morning. Captiva treated me good and I will definitely be making the trip back across the state soon!

    Nice snook. Is that a Paul Brown in her lip?

    Nice fish I'm going to try heading over that way Thursday as I have an old friend from high school down from NC on vacation. I just hope the wind isn't blowing too crazy.
