Buzzard Bay Snook

My good friend and Matlacha neighbor Bill Heindl landed a nice pair of snook with me yesterday in Buzzard Bay.  Bill was casting his favorite topwater lure, the indispensable Zara Spook and slammed a 22 and 25 incher within an hour or sunset from the bow of my Beavertail skiff.  The tide was barely rising and the water temperature was hovering around 73 degrees.  Even though we can't keep any snook this year it's still a great time to come to Southwest Florida and catch a few just for the fun of it.
