The most abundant of the twelve snook species, the common snook (Centropomus undecimalis) is prized by anglers for its aggressive strikes and go-for-broke fighting style. You can target snook in the surf on open beaches or in the gnarliest tangles of mangroves in tight tidal creeks, and they offer fly fishers a variety of challenges. Just because snook are voracious predators doesn’t mean they are easy to catch, though, as snook can develop “lockjaw”—depending on tide, weather or their own whims—that leaves anglers frustrated. Snook fishing involves a lot of hunting and a fair amount of luck, which is why landing a big snook is considered a true feat
There are many ways to target snook, from casting under dock lights at night, to sight-fishing along beaches at dusk and dawn, to shooting flies under vegetation and into mangrove roots. They feed most actively at night, but any period of low light can be productive. The IGFA world record for the common snook is a 53-pound 10-ounce monster caught in Parismina Ranch, Costa Rica. The Florida record in 44 pounds 3 ounces, while the fly-caught record is 30 pounds 4 ounces.
