High Tide Snook From Matlacha

Georgia angler Nick Blackwell came out on his first flats fishing trip with me this afternoon and scored a perfect 27 inch snook.  The fish hit a white Gulp shrimp on a 5/0 swimbait hook.  Snook have been a common sight in Matlacha Pass for me all week but very difficult to fool with artificials.  This was also the first legal sized one I've had on the boat all month.  Nick also landed a nice 16 inch trout but we missed the Slam despite spotting dozens of big redfish all morning.
