Fishing the tidal changes is key to catching snook. Some charter captains say that if you’re not fishing moving water then you’re not catching snook. You can catch these fish on a variety of artificial lures and live baits. Some of the best lures to use are soft plastics, topwater lures, jigs, spinnerbaits, spoons and jerkbaits. As far as live baits go, a live jumbo shrimp or pilchard will almost always get bit when snook are feeding. Because snook are nocturnal feeders, the best times to fish are in the morning, evening and at night.
