    Snook and Tarpon 6/2/12

    Went fishing in the Indian River down near Palm Bay yesterday. My buddy caught a nice 27' snook first cast, then a couple mins later I hooked up to a upper slot sized snook. As night fell the tarpon began to bite and my friend managed to catch one. We missed a bunch of tarpon but still had a lot of fun.

    Glad to see some snook being caught. Hopefully since the season is closed and the water is warming up I can go out to my spots and catch some of those monster snook. Also there are a load of spots along the Indian river in back creek waterways you can catch snook and tarpon.

    Did not try any topwater plugs this time, but might have to next time! These fish were caught in brackish water, it was a blast!
