Snook Report - Northern Pinellas Region

Targeted linesiders around Three-Rooker/Anclote last Wednesday evening. Caught and released four Snook to 35", plus a bonus 23" trout. All fish were caught during the first part of the outgoing tide on palm sized pinfish and grunts.

This is the first year since the 2009/2010 freeze we've seen a healthy consistent population of snook (of all sizes) in the extreme Northern Pinellas and Southern Pasco region. We saw over 50 fish on the flats and in the passes from schoolies all the way up to 40"+.

    Great looking fish there. Hope to hook into some snookies soon. They seem to have a knack for evading me. Keep up the great work and awesome reports, TailingReds

    Great report. Can anyone report on bait in that area?

    Great report. Can anyone report on bait in that area?

    All grass flats inside the passes in 3-7ft are holding white bait and pins (north/south Anclote key, three rooker and honeymoon/dunedin causeway). Chum for about 15-20 minutes, a couple throws of the net and you should be good to go. Just make sure to get out as early as possible, after about 9AM the bait goes deep and is significantly harder to find, especially on the weekends.

    Nice report. So good to see this bait finally being somewhat consistent. I got it late AM yesterday but it was a long slow process, early is better for sure.
    Go home when the fishings done.
