by on December 13, 2008

Are you planning to go Snook fishing in Florida but you don’t know where to start? There are many different Florida charters where you can use your fishing prowess and skills, not just on Snook but also on other fish such as redfish, trout, cobia, grouper, permit, tarpon, largemouth bass or other game fish you might be interested in. Snook fishing is one of the most popular among anglers in Florida because it poses a challenge to their skill and abilities.

The most exciting and red-hot Snook fishing action takes place in the sparkling and clear waters and back country of the coast of Florida. Anglers from all over the world go to Florida to experience the thrill of catching game fish like Snook. Snook,  tarpon and Redfish are usually the reason why anglers from all over the world go to Florida.

Before you start fishing in Florida, you should know first the different Florida charters where you can go fishing and you should find a guide who will help you along the way. A guide should be a licensed captain who has vast knowledge in fishing or any other things related to fishing.

There are different methods of Snook fishing in Florida like using topwater baits, jigging, spinning equipments, or fly fishing. However, the method that you will use depends on where you will go fishing. Are you going fishing on saltwater, freshwater, or brackish water? Do you want to test your Snook fishing skills in the flats or the drop-offs? Your choice of fishing method could also depend on the biting behavior of the Snook. Your fishing guide can help you choose the best methods. But you can also ask him to teach you new methods that you may not be familiar with. Try several Florida charters and each time use a different method and before you know it, you are becoming a better angler every time you leave one charter.

If you are on vacation with your family, you could try fishing or sight fishing in some Florida charters such as the flats of Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River Lagoon. Not only can you catch big redfish, it is also great for sight fishing because the depths of these flats are only around 5 feet tops. What better way to familiarize yourself with fish than to see them swimming with other fish or with a school of fish!

The Merritt Island and the Canaveral Seashore are the central parts of the Florida east coast and here you can find not just fish but also a variety of birds and other wild animals.

Snook fishing Florida charters include Sebastian Inlet or Port Canaveral, the central and south part of the Florida east coast. To catch a Snook, and you are inexperienced you might need heavier tackle, because light tackle is no match for this magnificent yet stubborn creature. Sometimes, there are Snook on the farther north area of Port Canaveral. But generally, you can find Snook around these areas and a little bit north of Tampa Bay and down south fishing in Sanibel Island area can be very productive.

Snook fishing in Florida is every angler’s dream. You’ve never been a real angler if you haven’t experience of Snook fishing in Florida. So why not live your angler dream and join anglers in Florida for a fishing challenge you’ll never forget.
