It's 26 Degrees -- Do You Know Where Your Snook Are?
Went down to the Homosassa Wildlife Park yesterday with some visiting relatives. I've never seen so many snook jammed into the main spring hole before. It was solid snook from top to bottom except for a school of jacks near the surface. There were a few sheepshead grazing off the manatees that they let in through the gate because of the cold and a couple of snappers that were about to get eaten. The snook were segregated by size with the largest one down deep and smaller one closer to the surface or forced into the shallow water. None were less than 20" or so. Unless they find small springs or seeps in the marshes, the last 0-3 year classes are toast. Frozen toast that is.
