    My son has a theory that big old beasts like that no longer breed. He thinks they just find a happy spot up in the river and grow old and fat. Most of the fish in the inlet are not that large. We have caught large snook way up in the river when they are supposed to be hanging out in the inlet making babies.

    I have to disagree the biggest Snook are caught in the Inlet during the summer. Looking forward to next summer to see if we top our PB of over 45".

    Congrats on the slob. They feel like monsters back in the skinny water and lighter tackle.

    Thanks. Caught on an X-rap, 14# main line and 40# leader on an old Penn 712z. She just hugged the bottom and did circles around the boat. Pretty miraculous I landed her. When she finally showed herself my wife said “omg it’s one of those sturgeon things!”. The photo doesn’t do the belly justice, that fish was probably full of little bass, snapper, mullet, and white bait. Definitely bigger than anything I’ve personally seen pulled from the inlet or ocean. Revived and swam away.

    Btw, I estimated her at 50”, wouldn’t be surprised if it was closer to 55”. I’m 5’11” 205# for reference.

    Awesome catch! Just got my personal best snook last month. We were shocked by what came to the surface as well. Congrats!
