Snook Fishing in South Florida

From Cape Coral around the Everglades, down the Keys, and up to Miami, you’ll encounter some of the finest Snook fishing you could imagine. The shallow, warm waters make South Florida a haven for these exciting beasts year round. Hop aboard a South Florida Snook fishing charter and see what all the fuss is about. 

What to Expect

Thrilling, monster Snook await you in South Florida. These prized creatures can only survive in warm waters, which makes the Sunshine State an ideal habitat for them. From the shallow bays of the southwest to the mangroves in the south and the Keys, there are plenty of hiding spots for Snook. 
 
In order to reach these shallow waters, and to make sure you don’t scare the Snook, you’ll fish from a shallow-hulled bay boat. Spend anywhere from four to eight hours on the water, getting as much as you want out of your day. 

How to Fish

You’ll need to creep up quietly so as not to scare the fish, gently casting your bait in the fish’s direction, before chaos breaks loose. The Snook will do whatever it can to take the bait to the bottom, so use all your skills and strength to keep it close to the top. 
 
Summer usually sees the best results, but you can be confident of landing a Snook at any time of year. Avid anglers will particularly enjoy the thrill of going after these spooky fish and will appreciate a full day on the water to perfect their cast in various waterways. If a full day of casting sounds too much for you, half day trips are a perfect introduction to catching Snook in South Florida.
 
For the best results, hop on a night charter and target these beauties under the dock lights. They’ll come up to feed under the cover of darkness, giving you a rare chance to catch them off-guard. 

How to Prepare

Your captain will provide everything you need for a productive day on the water, including all gear, bait, and fishing licenses. All you need to do is bring some drinks and snacks, and protect against the heat, and you’re good to go. Step aboard a South Florida Snook fishing charter, and experience some of the best Snook fishing in the world.

Captain Dayron did everything to get us fish. Very knowledgeable of the area. We caught Snook and Red Fish had a great time on the water. My wife and I will be back next year to go with Captain Dayron.

"Half day trip with Captain Steve"

John Rutkowski fished with Native Fishing Charters on August 24, 2019

Captain Steve has a comfortable boat (24 foot bay boat) excellent equipment. He put us on the fish early in the morning until the man in the gray suit showed up. The Snook bite was hot early and out of season (catch and release) then we chased the Tarpon. We had a great time with Captain Steve.
