Our good friend Izzy just sent me this image of a chunky snook he just landed fishing a mangrove shorelines. In south-west Florida this is prime Tarpon season, but you can also catch a variety of fish in the shallow waters that include; snook, bluefish, Spanish mackerel and much more!

If you do get a chance to coastal fish in Florida, even now, Rapala has a great series of Rapala Magnum Travel Rods designed for all-round saltwater fishing. I tested them, they travel well (4-pieces), and they fish awesome!
