Snook are another common fish among inshore anglers. Snook are similar to largemouth bass, but much bigger. Snook hang out around docks, rock piles, bridges, trees, mangroves, inlets and backwaters. Bass fishermen usually have no problem learning how to catch snook. The types of baits are different, but the types of cover that hold snook are very similar to where bass would hang out if they were a saltwater species.
