Snook like to lay near or under cover like trees that have fallen in the water along the shorelines and underneath docks.

Our good friends the Fishers have been enjoying a holiday in Punta Gorda, Florida. High winds and rain kept friends Gerald Fisher and Donald Bartolacci off the

water in Charlotte Harbor Florida last week.  

 

Big snook have a hard time resisting a large live shrimp, or a lively baitfish hooked on a small hook and free-lines under cover where snook are holding.

These three snook were caught within 10 minutes of each other, taken from underneath a big yacht in a residential canal in Punta Gorda. 

 

Snook are beautiful fish that take live bait and artificials readily, fight hard and taste great!

One of these big fish provided dinner for twelve people. One was below the slot limit, the other above the slot limit and were released.
