|Dr. Dennis Jeter from TN with a beautiful snook on fly that will probably be legal in 2018.|
I have to admit, these fish aren't being that kind to me once again. None of my anglers have managed to land a slot-legal snook with a fly since the season opened at the beginning of the month. We're hooking plenty of undersize beauties, like the one in the photo that hit a crab pattern meant for a redfish, and that's more than OK. Our tides and weather have been great and several of my friends landed legal snook on spinning gear this week, but the big girls are still a problem for me. I'm sure we'll get a fly rod keeper eventually, and it's definitely going on the grill.
