Catch Snook On Topwater Lures [VIDEO]
When using topwater lures to target snook, there are some key changes to make to your lure so that you increase your chances of landing the fish.
Snook are incredibly hard fighters and they can easily bend the treble hooks traditionally found on topwater lures.
You could also hook them in the soft part of their mouth and lose the fish.
Not to mention, treble hooks can be dangerous for you and for fish.

Once you have your lure toughened up and ready to fish, you’ll want to make sure you are using the right casting techniques.
Casting is very important no matter what type of lure you are throwing, especially when you are fishing around structure.
Snook love structure because they use it to hide and then ambush prey.
To be most effective when targeting snook, follow the casting rule of 3.
Make at least 3 casts to a certain spot because even if your lure is inches off the mark, that could be the difference between getting the strike and not.
As you retrieve back, the best method is doing a constant steady pop that’s faster than what you would typically do when targeting trout or redfish.
That faster movement without pauses entices the snook to attack!
Catching snook in general is a ton of fun.
They are aggressive strikers and put up a great fight.
But catching snook on topwater takes that fun to a whole new level!
Here’s the lure I used in the video to get on a fun snook bite:
