Pine Island Fishing Report: The Snook Are Back

Actually, they never went away.

Heading out from Matlacha


Another local angler.
Mike Craig from Bokeelia hooks up on a mid-size snook.
Voracious eaters once the waters warm up out there.
Pine Island Sound is loaded with guys like this.
Mike's buddy Russell from North Carolina got the prize for best fish of the day.  A beautiful 33 incher.
Topwater lures are my weapon of choice for snook fishing.
Big trout were also in abundance today.  This 20 incher hit a Gulp near Pineland.
