Today’s charter was out of New Smyrna Beach, the two gentlemen I was fishing were from Georgia and it was Lance’s birthday and his buddy Eddie was joining him for the birthday trip. First thing Lance told me was that Eddie had never caught a Snook and would there be snook where we were going? Well I told him that the first spot we were hitting would have a mixed bag available and I’d skip over the lady fish and Jacks and go directly to the area where the Snook and Reds would be. Well as we entered the creek we immediately saw predator fish blowing up on schools of finger mullet in the 4″ – 5″ range. So on Eddies 3rd cast he hooked up on something that immediately swam into the middle of the creek where the water depth was about 8′ deep. As he didn’t initially jump when he hooked him just inches from the mangrove lined shore I was thinking a big red. After a few minutes he got him closer to the boat and up close to the top and we saw a beautiful 25″ Snook. Well Eddie had his first Snook and it was the first fish in the boat that morning. We continued through the morning chasing reds and snook through the creeks and then ended it in Ponce Inlet where we loaded up on Mangrove Snapper, Red Fish, Sea Bass and even a Grouper. Was a great day, Thanks to Lance and Eddie…..
