Snook makes them smile

Trip Info


We headed off early in the morning in search of greenies north of the St. Lucie Inlet, about 2.5 miles. We followed the pelicans, as we always do, and we were relieved once we saw them diving into the shallow waters.  Pay close attention to what the tide is doing, the depth of the water, waves and wind, as you can very easily get distracted and end up on the beach, these greenies are in about 2 to 3 feet of water at times and you will need to chase them down to shore to get them.  After filling the bait well, we headed off to the Sand Pile off the St. Lucie Inlet and drifted along the west side. After a few cut-offs due to sharks, my guest Kaycee caught and released her first Cobia.  The wind kicked up and we decided to head inshore and with the tide changing to incoming, there were a few spots I wanted to hit.  We started just south of the St. Lucie inlet and Kaycee, showing off lady luck, caught and released her first snook.  With the incoming tide, we fished the entire south side of the inlet, where 2 more snook were caught and yes Kaycee caught one of them, the other was caught by Justin, her boyfriend.  In all we had a wonderful time given the tough wind conditions that occurred later in the day. And yes, Kaycee out fished the Boys today….
