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.

What People Are Saying About Snook Fishing in South Florida

"2 Hour Trip"

Chris Blankenship fished with Skinny Waters Adventures on July 15, 2019

Our trip with Captain Travis was excellent!The shorter trip I recommend with youngster's. My son is 6 and Captain Travis worked well with him and had us on snook and other fish species within minutes. I loved the boat setup! We had a great first fishing experience in Florida. We will definitely be back.

"Half Day with Captain DJ"

Andrew Calabrese fished with AARedfishFelicity LLC on July 15, 2019

Went out with Captain DJ today to fish Florida Bay. Aside from being a great guy, he knew how and where to fish these waters and consistently put us on the fish. We caught redfish, tripletail, trout and snook and Captain DJ was super focused on making sure we had a great time. Would recommend him highly.

"Full day with Keith of Seafood Charters"

Jim Low fished with Seafood Charters on July 12, 2019

Keith arrived at the dock exactly when he said he would. We were on snook right off and the four of us had constant action for about 3 hours. We tried for trout and mackerel with some catches, also snapper. Things slowed later but that's fishing. Would recommend this charter
