Snook Fishing

Snook Fishing in FL:

If there is one place known to be the Snook Fishing Capital of the World, it would be Florida. Incredible trophy sized Snook can be caught all year round, especially in South Florida. Snook fishing provides one of the BEST ways to experience inshore fishing. The characterized and known “thump” along with hard-pulls and head thrashing nature of the Snook make it one amazing fish to catch.

Snook is one the most sought after game fish in Florida; it has a lot of fight and it’s delicious to eat! These fish are smart and fast, so they must be fished with stealth and precision. Live bait is the most effective especially mullet, pinfish, grunts, crabs and ladyfish. You can also catch them on artificial baits that mimic their live forage in the area.

Our local experts will take you to all the hot-spots to catch your next inshore giant. Take a cruise through Florida’s inland waterways, inlets, flats, and mangrove estuaries chasing a Snook with light tackle and fly.
