Snook Fishing

Snook fishing in Matlacha is best done during the spring, summer, and early fall. During this time, snook is likely to be found in the shallow grass flats, mangrove shorelines, and near oyster bars. Anglers can use live bait such as shrimp, small crabs, and finger mullet to target snook in Matlacha. Artificial lures such as jigs, topwater baits, plugs, and soft plastics can also be effective. When casting your lure, it’s important to remember that snooks are sight feeders and can be easily spooked by a loud retrieve or lure. So, it’s important to remember to cast in the direction of open water and to approach them carefully. As with all fishing, it’s essential to observe the regulations and local bag limits when snook fishing.
