Monster Snook Barely Landed Using SECRET NEW LURE
What a fight!!
I definitely should not have caught this fish.
There were several times throughout the fight where I thought, “This is it.”
But the pop of the line breaking never came.
Even after wrapping me around trees and my pedal drive, and after several acrobatic leaps through the air, she was still on.
And best of all, I got it all on film.
Check out the video below!

What an awesome fight!
I’m so thankful I had a good hookset that kept the leader away from the snook’s mouth and gill plates.
This was my very first day trying out our new Slam Shady BOMBER and I’m definitely a huge fan.
The BOMBER is a 5″ paddletail in the Slam shady color pattern and if you’ve seen the video where I had to get out of my kayak and into the water to chase a snook around dock pilings, you might remember that I had the 3.5″ Slam Shady 2.0.
So why did I use the 5″ BOMBER now and the 3.5″ paddletail then?
That first catch happened in the spring when baitfish are smaller.
You always want to match the hatch, so in the winter, spring, and early summer, you want to use a smaller lure.
Later in the summer and in the fall when the baitfish are at their largest, you want to go with a larger lure, like the BOMBER.
You can get these two lures at our shop here:
Have any questions about which lure to choose and when?
Let me know down in the comments.
