Epic snook bite!

Trip Info


We left the ramp at 10am in some of the thickest fog I have ever seen. We managed to creep across the bay to a mangrove shoreline to try and target redfish. Unfortunately we couldn’t see 20 feet in front of the boat and were never able to get on the Reds.

After the fog lessened we made a move to a natural creek. We set up at the mouth of a small feeder creek to pick off fish as they followed the outgoing tide. The plan worked perfectly and we boated 3 nice redfish and around 10 snook.

We decided to make a move to some deeper water to see if the fish were laying in the holes on the low tide.

What a great decision this was. For the better part of an hour we landed over 90 snook. We had multiple doubles and a few triples to boot! These fish ate from the moment we arrived until we left them biting.

I expect this pattern to continue until the weather stays cold for more than a few days.
