First fish said 50lbs err In my neck of the woods, this is my biggest snook ever
Fish number 2 was only 37 lbs but worthy, she was longer than the 1st fish. Only 2 fish this day but glad to go

Do people eat snook? I've only caught two and throw them back.

I rarely ate them preferring to catch and release but of those I did, they are great! Like many species of fish, the quality of water they live in has an influence on taste. With only a 6 month season to harvest a snook and both a lower and upper limit on what can be kept, only an avid snook fisherman can count on eating them regularly as they can't be bought or sold legally.

If you like crappie, you will like snook.

A good rule of angling philosphy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

That's the fattest snook I have ever seen.

That's a hell of a Snook! I've caught some monsters myself at the Lake Worth Spillway, not sure where you are at ... Looks like Jupiter maybe. There is a smaller species of Snook we also used to catch at the spillway, we called them Cuban Snook but I think the correct name is a Tarpon Snook. Those are the ones we ate. At that time there were no limits on the Cuban Snook... back in the late 80's. I won't bore you with the story but I've caught 50# Snook before and I really do believe I lost a Record book Snook at the spillway while trying to pull the fish into the boat. I really could have used a gaff that day
