Default Snookin

We got blown out of our bonefish spot today so we hit a very productive spot of mine. We caught about 20 mullet and hit it up. EVERY single cast got hit. We had a lot of break off's due to the mangroves and some of the bigger snook. We also landed a nice 4lb black snapper. As you can see by these pics most of the fish were the shorter sub species of snook but we did get some that are normal. I still can't figure out pics on this site!!!!!

They are but you can really tell the difference between the common and the fat. It could just be the size. I hooked a big common line slider and he could not be stopped. I got him out and it just turned it's head and kept pushing until the line snapped not head shakes or anything just preasure. I could not let him run due to structure. I had some casts today on one the size of my leg that would not commit to the artificial. I was out of live bait. I have them dialed in right now and it's only going to get better with the mullet run. I'm ready to focus on Bones with the water temp dropping.

Penn slammer rod stiff inshore and a Penn Sargus SG3000 and 4000 8lb test mono with a 25lb leader. Mullet when snapper are around and shrimp when it's just snook. LONG leader. You need to trim and re tie after every fish. Artificial: Jig tipped with a soft plastic. Red and white gets the bite. I usually use artificial in Flamingo where the water is not so clear. The snook in the keys went to Harvard so I usually fish them with live bait. No pinfish! They dig down to quick. I have also had luck with a weedless shad on a weighted bass hook but you have to skip it WAY back into the groves and I suggest braid b/c it take power to get them out. Hit the canals near mm90 in tavenier with the shad twitch and let sit twice then reel it back in.
