First Snook Fishing Trip to Fort Lauderdale

First Snook Fishing Trip to Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale is an amazing place to travel and visit while spending time in Florida. Beyond Extraordinary my First Snook Fishing Trip to Fort Lauderdale was also one of the best activities you can embark on.

The Florida Fishing expert Captain Brad took us out Night Fishing  for Snook, it was our first Snook fishing trip.

Night Fishing for Snook under the city and port lights of Fort Lauderdale could not be more of an amazing feeling. From catching the mullet or bait to reeling down into a fish of a lifetime, you are sure to have an excellent time catching these monster Snook this time of year.

Fort Lauderdale Inshore Fishing could not get any better and the big fish have been moving in and chasing the mullet. We caught over 10 quality Snook with only 3 in slot range.

One of the last fish of the night was the biggest fish caught by Joe weighing over 20 pounds measuring in at 38 inches. These Snook are incredibly healthy and fight really hard. They will surprise you on how fast and hard they run.

Captain Brett also caught a tarpon that was a kicker fish for the boat. There is nothing like catching the number and quality of fish we caught in Fort Lauderdale where we were at.

Captain Brett is the man when it comes to fishing for Snook in Fort Lauderdale and you do not want to miss out on your adventure today while the fishing is still hot!

Come catch yours with Captain Brett doing some Fort Lauderdale Inshore Fishing.

I had the pleasure of fishing with Kelly and her party that wanted to experience what the waters of Ft Lauderdale, FL had to offer. One of the best parts about fishing here is the endless amounts of opportunity you have to catching the fish you have been after.

While we were slow trolling live bait, we were able to box a 30 pound King Mackerel. They enjoyed the rush and fight from this amazing fish. Aggressive Barracuda also came out to play and we caught a number of those. Not necessarily targeted but very exciting to catch for all ages.

Florida Snook The Seasonal Treat

Florida Snook The Seasonal Treat

Snook are strictly regulated to protect it from overfishing. Catching them requires a license, permit, they must be within the range of a certain size, the bag limit is one a day, you’re only allowed to keep them in season and they are not allowed to be sold or bought. So your only way of having some is to grab your gear and get out on the water.

Many say its all worth it for an amazing seasonal treat. Snook is a delicious sport fish, ask almost anyone that has tried a bite. They will normally reply that it was one of the best-tasting fish that they have ever had. The meat is white, with medium density and a mild subtle taste. With countless recipes online a quick search will bring up a plethora of options to choose. remember to remove the skin or your gonna have a bad time. Anyways a favorite among many is the deep fried fish method. But which every way you like to prepare them this is definitely a tasty fish unless you don’t take the skin off then its not.

Snook can be found in south and central Florida mostly inshore brackish and coastal waters. they can also be found along man-made structures mangroves, and shorelines and Large schools form in summer for spawning.

Snook Fishing in Florida is a remarkable way to experience the outdoors. Snook is a great eating fish and are one amazing fish to catch. Seasonally they are open for harvest but are just as fun to catch-and-release.

What Kind of Bait Do You Use to Catch SNAPPER in Ft Lauderdale?

What Kind of Bait Do You Use to Catch SNAPPER?

Use to Catch SNAPPERThe Snapper, particularly Red Snapper, is one of the most prized fish to catch in Fort Lauderdale while Deep Sea Fishing. Not only is it known for its tasty meat but also for its display of strength in the fishing sports world. It thrives in abundance in the Ft Lauderdale due to the favorable warmer climate and rich marine life in the area.

They key to successful Snapper Fishing in the Atlantic Ocean is a wide variety of bait. Remember that just like any game fish, Snappers are very discerning creatures, that one bait may not necessarily be effective the next time.

Of course, you can choose between artificial and live bait. It is observed, however, that Snappers take artificial baits with less vigor compared to natural bait. That is why, when choosing artificial lures, always bring along different kinds and sizes since Snappers to have a range of choices.

Although artificial baits nowadays may have the best in technological advancement, it doesn’t mean that live bait won’t do anymore. In fact, Tarpons respond the most to live baits. Snappers can eat absolutely almost anything although they have developed a preference for small fishes such as sardines and cigar minnow, and crustaceans. In fact, the Red Snapper derives its reddish tint from its diet of mostly shrimps.

In Fort Lauderdale, Snappers can be caught in waters as deep as 30 feet to 300 feet. They tend to cluster at the bottom of the ocean and prefer rocky reefs, ridges and ledges, and artificial refuges such as shipwrecks and oil rigs. Make sure you observe the FWC regulations!
