South Florida is full of fun activities for all ages. Snook fishing should be at the top of your list if your looking for something exciting to do alone or even with your family. This species of fish is very similar to large mouth bass fishing only the fish you catch is a lot bigger. They often hang out along structure waiting to ambush their pray. The Snook eats a wide variety of things including live bait, lures, and fly fishing flies. Captain Rich Smith is a native fishing guide that has many years of experience fishing for snook in the backcountry.
The cool part about Snook Fishing here in the Florida Keys and South Florida is it’s really all about just getting out there and catching fish. Often times guys that have been fishing their whole lives get caught up in trying to catch a monster. Which we agree can be fun but Snook fishing is different. This style and species of fish gets us back to that moment we all fell in love with fishing. Just getting out there and doing it. Sometimes you get lucky and catch a monster 20-30 lb. fish and sometimes you don’t. But at the end of the day you’ve got some photos to brag about and a memory that will last a lifetime.
