SI 9/25: Kissed by a snook

The snook were blowing up like cannon fire around me this morning and I couldn't get bit. Finally this big girl gently sucked my chug bug down without making a sound. I wondered what was going on as she lay there motionless with my lure in her mouth in 1 foot of water. But, when I bowed up on her it was on! I was by myself so I had one hand on the trolling motor remote and one on the screaming rod as she drug me around the bay. When she squeezed into the landing net I went from nervous wreck to pure joy. Ain't fishing fun! It's hard to tell from the selfie but she measured at 41". My biggest snook on top water.
