Capt. Ron and Sam here saying good bye to Summer time and welcoming in Fall! If you know anything about Fall fishing in South Florida, you are preparing for the opening of Snook season in Monroe County! Snook season opened September 1 and closes December 1. Over here at Capt. Ron Howell's Guide Service we are anticipating an action-filled Fall full of an amazing Snook bite. We normally fish with live bait using a spinning reel loaded with 15-20lb braid and 30lb leader with a weight and a hook. We prefer to use Pilchards or Finger Mullet and look for shoreline with an undercut bank or trees in the water, this is where Snook love to hangout in the shade to get away from the hot Fall sun. The bite is normally red hot in the morning until about 11am; the water gets pretty warm after that and the bite tends to die down. We often catch Mangrove Snapper around the same areas that we find the Snook on a live shrimp. If you are lucky, you might even have the opportunity to catch a Tarpon as they start to push out towards the end of Summer. Here at Capt. Ron Howell's Guide Service we are dedicated on getting you on some fish this Snook season! Call to book, 305-896-1507 Ron or 305-896-3159 Sam.
As always, Tight Lines!
Capt. Ron and Sam Howell
