    Sorry I missed you when I was out there, all mine were dock light snook and one shot on the flat. I did have fun with my black fin, some albies and a tile fish though. Although I know it is weird, I also got a kick out of catch pork belly after pork belly, ask Martin about it, I imagine he is still shaking his head.

    Those are really nice snook! I'd love to get one on a fly rod. Last April I had a decent snook chase my fly into the beach at Boca Grande, but no take.

    I'll bet those were a hoot! Looks a bit lonely there, excessive serenity... how do you cope ;). Thanks for sharing some pictures from the opposite coast.

    Think I could make it there and back before work on Tuesday! I am envious of the fishing you have on the southern east coast. Then again I would miss our cold and wet Steelhead season

    This was the other day 25#'s.

    Steelhead fight harder are prettier & are in nicer surronding's.

    I think the grass is always greener. I think Snook are beautiful, but I've caught far fewer of them then I have of steelhead (don't get me wrong, I think each steelhead I catch is gorgeous as well) and I imagine after a few hundred I'd be up for something new. And that is where you have us. Our ability to catch multiple, multiple species that fight hard hard hard pales in comparison to what Florida has to offer. Heck your junk Bonita at 6 lbs could kick a 10 lb stellhead's butt all day long!

    I'm from NY & been here 10 years. I'd move back in a heart beat or anywhere I can catch Trout & Steelhead.

    Let's just all be sure take care of the fisheries on both coasts so our kids can have this same debate in 30 years!!!

    Nice snook. Go to see. I used to live in Florida and fish the beaches in the summer for snook.
