Matlacha Snook

Here's a shot my buddy Don Moorehead sent me on Friday after his morning trip in the southern part of Matlacha Pass.  He landed this excellent snook on a topwater lure as well as two big redfish and several keeper sized sea trout.  An hour earlier I poled through the exact same spot with a paying charter, also using the same lures, and caught absolutely nothing.  On the bright side, I showed Don this particular bay back in January and we caught nine reds that day so I'm taking partial credit for his success.  Actually, Don is the owner of Keystone Custom Rods and great angler so I'm not surprised that he picked up a Slam on a day that I could only catch ladyfish.
