Default Awesome day, Reds and a Snook!

Hit the water this AM around 730. Went for a decently long pedal to my favorite flats. Started a touch slow, the wind was not doing us any favors. However by 830 I was on the fish. Managed to haul in 6 redfish or so, Lose one other, and in that mix I managed to land a 23" Snook.

Yes, I said Snook. I was on a school of reds and I made a cast back in to the mix, and when the fish hit I knew it was not a red or a trout. I had no clue, the fish was about 40ft from me when it made its first jump. I thought, that is the biggest lady fish I have ever seen. Then it jumped a second time, I clearly saw the line down the body and thought...no.... I let the fish pull some drag so I could get the net ready. One dip of the net and there was a Snook in my lap, right here in Pensacola. For me this is INSANE. If I weren't the one who caught it I wouldn't have believed it. But that's what pictures are for!

All of the fish were caught on a Penn Conflict 2000 reel, spooled with 8lb Cast king braid with a 15lb fluorocarbon leader, Matrix shad and 1/8oz Golden eye. And everyone was released! Thanks for the read, Tight Lines!

I saw the title and wondered where you were vacationing. That's awesome coming out of the Panhandle! Maybe global warming will get us a permanent population lol.

Yea, I thought about that and tried to change the title but no dice. I should have put Pensacola in there. If a permanent pop comes here I wont complain, it was an absolute blast to catch.
