Snook Saved the Day. Oct. 29th 2011 FeaturedWritten by Captain Dan
We knew going into today's charter, it was going to be a tough one. Rain in the morning, and an approaching cold front; these were not the ideal fishing conditions one could hope for. However, my great clients Mishel and Earl were game for giving it a try and we made the best of a windy situation. Making a run to the intake canal in hopes of trolling up a grouper, was our morning plan, but no takers today. We made several passes and with the seas building, we ran to the safety of the river. This is the prime time for targeting snook in the river and the snook didn't disappoint us. We hooked and landed a couple beautiful Crystal River snook while using Mirrolure Mirrodines and Yo-Zuri 3D minnows to make the best of the day. Releasing the snook and numerous mangrove snapper filled out the afternoon and we did just fine despite the conditions. I thank you both very much for the great time and here is Mishel with one of today's Crystal River snook... Capt. Dan
