A few big ‘summer time snook’ showing up!

Have caught a couple size XL snook the last couple times out into the backcountry.  My dads buddy pete caught a PB close to 40 inches.  We also caught a couple others in the 36 inch range.  Here is a cool video of his epic catch!  Good to see some of the ‘big girls’ showing up as they’ve been a little harder to find the last few times we were out in the Spring.  But summer time is often good for snook fishing and the big ones come to do the spawning.  We had good overall snook fishing yesterday as well catching some nice size fish in the creeks on pilchards, and plenty of tripletail floating around off the backcountry beaches too.  If you are wanting to come down this summer drop me a line, I’ll probably book some stuff ahead of time for August/September time frame.  June I’ll open a few days soon as well as July in another month or so.
