Unbelievable Snook Catch (All Caught On Film!!)


What a wild ride!

You’ve got to see this incredible snook catch by Tony, one of our Salt Strong Fishing Coaches.

Here’s the quick back story…

Tony was out testing the new Slam Shady 2.0 to see how it compared to the original.

It was a cool February morning so he decided to hit some docks, and that’s when this beast decided to smash his lure.

The snook was holding tight to the dock pilings and definitely knew how to use them to her advantage…

Check out the amazing battle below.

Such an incredible fight!

I love how Tony got out of his kayak just to have the snook wrap him around the docks a second time.

Have you ever had a battle like that?

It seems like most of the stories I hear about snook wrapping people around pilings never end well, but apparently Tony doesn’t buy into that narrative…

Great job Tony! Really enjoyed the video: “The Young Man and the Sea”, except with this story the great fish lives. Proud of you, releasing that worthy fish to fight another day.

Thanks Robert! A whole lotta things could have gone wrong haha. Kayak could have drifted away, fish break off, cut my foot on something, sink into the mud, kick a stingray, hit my head on the dock, the list goes on……

Thanks Tim! Always have the camera when fishing. That spot looked super fishy so I just happened to turn it on before the cast. Love it when that happens!

Did you consider opening the bail to take the pressure off the fish? Crazy battle!

It didn’t cross my mind in the heat of the moment. I did loosen my drag waaay down though.
