This nice-looking super-sized Snook was caught and released by Alex who’s shown left. Alex will be heading into his sophomore year at the University of Cincinnati following some summertime rest and relaxation.
Alex, who along with his dad, both from Cincinnati, fished with me on the Let’s Get Em’ Charter Boat out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key this past week.
Both anglers were using artificial bait when Alex, fishing with a topwater lure, saw and felt an explosion at the end of his line. After several minutes of drag pulling, and a wildly jumping fish Alex showed his angling ability as he landed one very nice trophy Snook.
We caught several other fish but this is the one he’ll remember for a long time to come.
