CR 5-28 Snookin

Hammerhead Ted and I went out early Thursday for some topwater action. The first hour it was action a plenty with the Jacks and trout busting our skitterwalks. We then changed to poppers and my favorite Yozuri popper gets slammed by a nice snook. Yeah they are expensive but those yozuris look good in the water.



I then hook up a giant snook on a top dog and but it made a strong run and straightened one of my treble hooks and got off. :banghead

Those big snook are hard to get especially when fishing shallow bars but it's fun trying.

We stayed with fishing bars and started catching some big mangroves on mirrodines and poppers. I got another snook up to the boat b4 it shook off. We had a great action day and we're done by 11.

    I want some of those bigger snappers. Maybe Ted needs a photographer sometime soon. :)

    So now that you have your snook you are hooked forever...so to speak?

    We were surprised by how aggressive those snapper were. They were hanging around some potholes and there would be 10 or so chasing the lure all the way to the boat.

    Bill your right I'm hooked on fishing for snook. It seems like every species is chewing right now.

    Fun as usual and a lot of action! BUT, Gary kicked my butt today! It's me that's supposed to have 3 Snook on. Summertime Mangrove Snapper are super aggressive and hit topwater readily, even one they couldn't possibly get in their mouth.
