snook fishing

Summer is finally here and the snook bite is great. On my first day of summer I caught my personal biggest river snook, which was in between 33 and 34 inches. Every trip since then has resulted in many more snook and good size trout. There have been a lot of snook under docks with rocky shores, and plenty of redfish cruising around docks with mangrove shores. Juvenile tarpon are in the canals for the summer and most of them can be found under the deeper part of docks in the Banana River and Indian River. Any small bait fish you catch in the cast net near where you want to fish are probably being eaten by the local predators and live shrimp are always a good bet.
