CR Snookin'

With Art shows over till fall, I can concentrate on various projects needing done around the house, but more importantly FISHIN'!! Had 3 short trips with similar results.
4/23- Went out for a very short quest to try to catch a Snook that kicked my butt twice, straightening a big treble hook and shaking off another time. But he did not learn and third time was a charm for me, although this was probably the craziest fish I've ever caught. 34"
4/28- Went out with my wife in the afternoon to catch the falling tide. We worked pretty hard for not that many bites, but I got 28" & 32" Snook and Maureen lost a monstr Jack after a 10min battle.
4/30 Went out this morning by myself to one of my favorite places and worked hard for a 27" Snook, some Jacks and a nice Mangrove Snapper. Then went to an area I have never fished before. Wind was up and water was crazy, but I hooked another Snook that was on Steroids. Jumped 6 times and resisted going into my undersize net. A real 34" fatty! Can't wait to go back there in calmer conditions!
Added bonuses were the family of Otters we saw frolicking up close, Bald Eagles sitting on bars and a great Dolphin show! All fish released to brighten someone's day in the future. Conserve our Snook.

    Nice Ted! You've got to share the secret mouth pose for snook man. At least that's what I was told as a kid, "you're not holding your mouth right" :rotflmao Keep on snookin man!

    My dad always said the same thing. I don't know how I hold it when I'm fishing, but here's how I hold it when I don't catch anything.
