Our very own Capt. Bucky Goldman was recently featured in the Bradenton Herald in an article by Jon Chapman after catching a monster Snook!
“Nothing was happening so I started to reel in one of the baits and as soon as I did a snook engulfed it,” Goldman said. “It made a straight run about 200 feet. I reeled in the other rod to get it out of the way.
“The fish ran toward an oyster bed and blew out the other big snook. I got it turned and then it circled around the boat and I finally got him in. I laid it on the deck, grabbed the tape measure and snapped a picture. I got her back in the water quick and revived her to let her go.”
The snook measured between 45 and 46 inches. Anything over 40 inches is considered a giant by west coast standards. “
