Jeremy's big snook

 

Snook fishing has been outstanding. I am averaging 30-50 fish a day with the average fish being 24″-26″ and weighing around 5lb-6lbs. Big snook have been very cooperative lately as well. I have had a ton of fish in the 28″ to 30″ range and have been regularly catching fish well over 36″. Snook season remains open until the end of November so get out there before it closes!

As of this post I have 19 schools of reds and I have been averaging 20-50 fish per day for the past few weeks. Most of the fish are well over the slot averaging 30″ and weighing around 10 lbs. Redfish are absolute bulldogs and have been putting my Shimano tackle to the ultimate test!

A ton of fish stayed in the Charlotte Harbor are after their spawn this year and they are feeding like mad. I have had no problems getting my clients of some big tarpon and have had as many as 17 hook ups in one morning. Most of the fish are averaging 50 lb. – 80 lb. but I have had a lot of fish pushing the 150 lb. mark. If you want to go tarpon fishing it is not too late!

Most of the fish are in the 1 lb-2lb range and nice limits have been pretty easy to get. If you like to eat fish there is no finer table fare!

Trout,  Spanish mackerel, bluefish, bonita, Goliath Grouper and big sharks have all been caught on Boca the past few weeks and I don’t see that changing anytime soon! That is why the fall is my favorite time to fish!
