Florida Inshore Fishing | Winter Snook

Targeting any inshore saltwater species of fish during the winter months can be tough for most anglers. Staying connected to the warm spots will keep you connected to the the fish. Snook are the first of the big three (trout,redfish, snook) to seek warm doing a cold snap. On the west coast of Florida anglers are catching snook all the way north to Stienahachee and locally in Homosassa. I've caught them in 58 degree waters. Try swimming in that! 


Tide, wind and sunlight direction all play a part in being successful catching winter snook. Wind direction is crucial to finding the warm water look on the north side of the canal, river or cove to find a high house, mangrove shoreline or tall trees to block that cold north wind. The southern sun during midday can hit these areas with radiant heat creating a warm zone. Tides are important because an outgoing tide will pull that earth heated water from a canal, small river or spring warming the snook. When the incoming tide pushes in the chilly Gulf waters expect the bite to shut down.
