“The Snook Book” Review (How To Guarantee You’ll Catch More Snook)


There are three things you can do right now if you want to guarantee you’ll catch more snook.

The first is to read “The Snook Book.”

“The Snook Book” could easily be the best book on snook fishing ever written.

Fishing author Frank Sargeant is known as one of the top authorities on snook, redfish, trout, and tarpon.

Not only does he have some of the top-selling books on those species, but his books are jam-packed full of great tactics and evergreen tips.

In this podcast, Luke and I break down some of our favorite chapters in Frank’s “Snook Book.”

Another great informative video ! I always learn different tactics by listening how others apply what they know! Put that with knowledge acquired and it’s just a great advantage on the water! Thanks for what you do! I just think if this was around 50 yrs ago how many records I could’ve had! 😆 lol

Great podcast. I did not see a link to the podcast you made a reference to. “Captain Dave the mad snooker” I would love to listen to that podcast. Thanks again.

Joe, I am a salt strong member from Buffalo. Have to ask…where did you get the “Buffalo Culture” tee shirt you are wearing?

You mention the “90-10” rule a lot and I believe that terminology comes from an old retired marine biologist by the name of Mr. Buck Perry. He also created the term “structure fishing” and another you may not have heard is “spoonplugging”. I give you a link to the first of a series of videos that include him speaking at one of his classes he gave. Before the “slam shady”, I used my own handmade (easy to do) spoonplugs to catch all type of fish when I was younger. Enjoy the knowledge learned from these videos and all of his books !

Some really good tips and info! However, since I was born and grew in and around Buffalo, Joe, what is the “Buffalo Culture” tee shirt?

While I am not a member of Salt Strong, you videos, have been very positive for me. I enjoy the humor at times, the professionalism of your team and the many recommendations from them also on equipment, lures and how to fish.
