Snook fishing is what we are most famous for next to Tarpon fishing. When it comes to snook there is nothing else like it. Depending on the time of year we will be fishing either far up the Manatee River or out on the beaches of St. Pete Beach, Anna Maria to Long Boat Key, Lido Key and everywhere in between. Covering everywhere from Tampa Bay to South Sarasota Bay, snook are by far our most exciting inshore fish we target and with a live well full of bait the action can be incredible. You never know when you hook one if he is going to be 20" or 45" until he is done with his first run. But make no mistake, if it is a big one you will definitely know soon enough. With line screaming off your reel, it is you and the fish with a small 8lb. line connecting the two of you. When it comes to fishing here lighter is better and seldom do we have a fish that cuts you off because of line size
The tackle we use is proven to work the best for inshore fishing from castability to being able to fight your fish all the way to the boat. If you have never caught a snook you owe it to yourself to be on the other end of the line with one of these incredible fish. The bag limit is one fish per person 27"- 34" and when it comes to the taste test they are right up there with the best of them. Every estuary and bay from Tampa Bay to Boca Grand has their own family of fish. These fish are creatures of habit and even through their migration process throughout the year they generally always come back to their home bays which helps locate and catch these fish to the trained eye. But, don't be fooled by part time guides or cut rate outfitters because not everyone can catch the fish the way a professional can. If you aren't spending 200 plus days out there you can miss the bite you are looking for and that is where our guides come in. We all share our days catch and compare to be the best in the business. This insures you a quality trip every time.
There is always a possibility of catching that big bruiser though and Captain Shawn spends a lot of his time searching for those big fish. A big Snook can get as big as 48" long and weigh as much as 35- 40lbs. They can give you non stop action for hours on end. You owe it to yourself to see the beauty of this legendary fish
