Snook Fishing: Tips On Catching Snook In The Summer

It’s snook fishing time!

In particular, targeting snook in the summer.

We just finished filming an incredible “Snook Fishing Mastery” course (for a full 3 days) with Capt. C.A. Richardson of Flats Class TV…

All I can say is, “WOW.”

It’s going to be our best course yet (I can’t wait for you to see it).

CA really has these snook (aka linesiders) things dialed in like no other (and it doesn’t hurt that he’s been studying them and targeting them for almost 30 years).

In this Fish Strong podcast episode, Luke and I share some of our best tips to targeting snook in the summer.

We’ll also hit up on a few things we learned from CA while filming the course.

You’ll hear us discuss the best times, places, lures, and rigs to target snook in the summer.

You’ll also learn where we like to target them, the best tides for snook, and some other unique tips to increase your hook-up ratio.


Note: The Snook Mastery course will be available in mid-May (stay tuned).

More great helpful info from the Salty Brothers. I agree with the comments on soft plastics, I too have more confidence and control because of their versatility. My question is .. how or when do you prefer a straight tail/jerk minnow or a paddle tail/swim bait minnow? Love both and personally I prefer to use a quick presentation jerk minnow when fish are more active, a paddle tail to search or when the bite it slower, and the weightless slow presentation with a jerk minnow when the fish are in a negative mood. Love to hear how it why you make the choice.
Again, thanks for all the great info you share.

I prefer the straight tails in clear water where the fish are relying heavily on sight… the quick darting motion is great at generating strikes. And I prefer paddletails in stained water because it gives off more vibration in the water and the predators are having to rely more on feel vs. sight to feed.

Another great video, so much information. Shout out to Bill Dance who I met at the Grant boat ramp Thursday morning while he was waiting for none other than Cptn. Peter Deeks.
