Snook Fishing Tips With The Captain Who’s Landed Over 300,000 Snook!


Can you imagine catching over 300,000 snook in your life?

That is mind-blowing!

But with over 45 years of snook fishing, that’s exactly what Capt. Dave Pomerleau, aka the “Mad Snooker,” has accomplished.

This is a value-packed episode where he’s sharing tips like:

  • The biggest mistakes snook anglers make (that you’re probably making yourself)
  • How to hook shrimp for monster snook (and when and where to use them)
  • The best tides for catching snook during each season
  • How to land, handle, and release snook so they can grow and reproduce (and so you catch them again when they’re bigger)
  • Why he only fishes for snook at night
  • How to catch 40+ lb snook (he’s caught three of them!)
