Finally caught my first Snook on topwater, and right here in Merritt Island! When he blasted the lure 4′ from where I was standing I thought I was about to get attacked by a gator, but was surprised by this guy instead.
I was exploring some spots that are biking distance from my house and had a run in with this little guy. I didn’t bring any of my gear with me so I couldn’t measure him, so I snapped a few quick pictures and quickly released him, making note of where he lives. I’ll be back on the boat to explore the area more and see what else it produces. I saw some small tarpon rolling, and heard more snook hitting bait all around.
