Tampa Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

Snook season reopened on Florida's Gulf Coast. Some anglers say it's long over due, while others believed the snook moratorium should have continued another year.

It has been almost four long years since the" The Big Snook Kill" of February 2010, when water temperatures dropped into the low forties devastating the snook populations of south west Florida. This created one of the worst fish kills on Florida record.

An estimated 600,000 plus snook were killed in central and south Florida, seriously putting the future out come of Florida's top saltwater game fish in serious peril.

"Snook fishing from Tampa Bay to south of Sanibel Island is nothing short of AMAZING! Slot size snook are in abundance and it is some of the best snook fishing we as Floridian's have had in decades!

It is up to Floridians to continue to support a responsible stewardship program in order to effectively manage our Florida Snook fishery. The key to the future of our snook will be left in the hands of our children, So teach by example. Capt. Sean Hagen Eupro Pro-Staff Director."
