Fish » Snook


Snook are considered by many to be the perfect gamefish: tremendous fighters, difficult to hook and land, and one of the best eating fish you will ever taste. They have a prominent and visible lateral line, a distinctive protruding lower jaw and a divided dorsal fin. There are four types of snook: the Common Snook, Fat Snook, Swordspine Snook and Tarpon Snook. Anglers almost exclusively target the Common Snook, which can grow up to 30 pounds. Snook are a warm water fish found inshore and in estuaries. They are extremely tolerant of fresh water for extended periods of time, and prefer to hang around overhanging mangroves, dock pilings and any submerged structure. Snook are prone to resting in an eddy waiting for moving water to bring them food.
