Default Crystal River Snook

I'm in Crystal River for a few days and went out solo this morning in the yak. Got a few nice Snook and a few Redfish. Highlight was this beautiful 37" Snook from 12" of water. I have to give big credit to my buddy Brian Stauffer of www.fishheadkayakcharters.com. He couldn't paddle with me this morning, but he told me what area to fish and he was spot on. If you're ever in Crystal River area and want somebody to put you on some fish, he's the man to call.

Nice fish Chris. Glad you didn't lift that hog outta the water just to take a picture of it. Good job.

In all honesty, I did hold her up for one quick pic, but kept her in the water pretty the whole time until release. I try to take the best care of them. Such an awesome species of fish.
