Snook Club

Post by Linesider41 »

I went out Thursday night for some snook fishing.
I did the usual thing with a shrimp tail jig.
Jumped a tarpon, landed a tarpon.
Jumped a few snook and landed this 31" beauty.
If you want to learn more about snook fishing join Snook Club on Facebook.
It is all snook all the time.

I love haters.
You all can sit there and hate all you want.
It won't change me.
I will be out there catching these snook. :reeling:
If you want to learn how to catch more snook go to Snook Club.

We went out Tuesday night and caught a few more. Kept this 29" for the table. Had the "Hook and Cook" at the Naughty Dawg.
It was awesome. I highly recommend the lemon capers version if you go there.

Meanwhile back at the Snook Club on Facebook we had a bunch of fish posted this week.
We have tons of fish over 40" that have been posted since the starting in September.

Here some more tips
The book on snook
• The Justice system (for snook): Dave Justice, a 35-year veteran of snook fishing and the field services manager for Berkley Fishing Products, offered these tips for catching snook by working jigs over ledges near inlets. He also catches snook from bridges using live bait, by trolling and around spillways. Justice will speak this weekend during the Florida Sportsman Fishing Show at the South Florida Fairgrounds.
• Water conditions: When fishing around ocean inlets with artificial baits, Justice favors the cloudy water of the outgoing tide. He usually fishes at night or in the early morning.
• Artificial baits: For ledges around inlets, Justice rigs jig heads ranging in weight from 3/4 to 1 1/2 ounces with Berkley Powerbait shrimp or Berkley Gulp Shrimp. For beginners, he recommends the Gulp Shrimp because of its strong scent.
• Rod/reel/line: When casting jigs around inlets, Justice uses an 8-foot musky rod and Ambassador 6500 reel. He spools half the reel with 25-pound-test monofilament (backing) and tops it with 30-pound-test braided line, such as Spiderwire Stealth, linked to 60-pound-test fluorocarbon leader.
• Leader knots: Justice developed two knots for attaching braided line to monofilament or fluorocarbon leader. His favorite is the Stren Knot -- half Uni knot, half improved clinch knot. He also uses a J-knot, similar to a surgeon's knot, but finishes in a top-to-bottom weave. He ties on jigs with a loop knot.
• Presentation: Justice casts over ledges and drop-offs, then works his jig back over the drops by reeling, pausing and reeling. He barely moves the rod tip. He strives to move the jig no more than 12 inches off the bottom, then lets it fall again. Snook often hit when the bait is falling. When the jig comes to a large drop-off, he sometimes puts the reel in free-spool to achieve as much vertical free-fall as possible, as if walking the lure down underwater stair steps.
• Live bait/bridges: When fishing from bridges, Justice uses live bait on a 9-foot rod with a Penn Senator reel spooled with 80-pound-test monofilament line and about 3 feet of 100- or 125-pound-test leader. His hook: A Mustad 9175. Favorite live baits: Sand perch, mullet and ladyfish.

"you dont get the show!!"....(i'll pick up and buy bait to the first person who can pm me that reference)

i actually follow you on FB and IG....you have a great page...but this isn't that type of forum....no disrespect to your cause...like i said.. i follow and really enjoy the snook club on FB. I learned to fish for real not too long ago and pages like yours make me hungrier and hungirer.

...but that isn't what this forum is about

we've had plenty of members come and leave into the world of social narcisism and instant gratification....its not about haters...no one is questioning your skills, just your intentions...

this is a give and take place....your number of likes and members mean nada here...goodwill, respect, and (above all) dedication mean the world.

You've been blowing up the FS forum as well....just an outsiders opinion, keep it tight...you dont want to make it shytty....unless you're eventually going to try to make some dollars.....
