snook are turning in northeast Florida

Flagler Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Snook fishing is in full swing in the Flagler Beach/Palm Coast area. On a recent charter three snook were caught that measured 21", 25" and 26". All three were caught live lining shrimp. They also caught trout, bluefish and flounder. I have also been receiving reports of people being broken off by fish in the 40" range, that's a big snook for this area.

Sunday we had a break in the wind so I headed out at day break to do some fly fishing. I started by throwing a Rainy's bubblehead topwater fly.It wasn't long before I had a couple of strikes on it but no takers. I then found a hungry snook and the monster measured a whopping 9". About 10 minutes later I landed a 24 1/2" snook. After no more hits on a topwater I switched to an EP mullet pattern fly and I landed, I'm almost embarressed to say, a 6" snook. I wound up with a 2 lb jack and a 16" trout before I left for home. By the way I also had small tarpon in the 10 lb range rolling close to the boat but I could not get them to eat.
I was out today for a while and the fishing was on the slow side due to a front that passed through. It's April and I had on long pants and a long sleeve shirt. I started thinking, is this Florida? I expect the fishing to get back to normal in another day or so.
