Florida SnookSnook can grow as large as 60 pounds and range from Florida to Brazil. South Florida offers the finest Snook fishing to be had. Florida snook can be found laying under a dock, sitting in the current under a bridge, relaxing in the shade of manrgove roots, cruising the shoreline of the beach, or hiding out in a coral reef. Snook will congregate to find a mate in the inlets of the east coast of Florida in the summer months or in the passes of the west coast. Catching spawning snook can be difficult because their interest is more on love than food. Finding the right bait to use will make the difference between catching fish or getting skunked. Summer snook are protected and should be handled gentley and released. Snook season opens in September but that doesn't mean you can't take advantage of some excellent catch and release fishing.
