There are so many habitats in which to go snook fishing and just as many ways to target the fish and none more bizarre than spillways. This is an extremely harsh environment for any fish to live, but these aggressive predators feasting on freshwater bait fish being washed through the gates of the spillway. Basically, you have large volumes of freshwater being released into a saltwater canal, which is impacted by the tides from the ocean. Water levels go up and down based on what the tide is doing and how much water is being released and for how long. This is Florida fishing at it's craziest!
If that wasn't enough, the question comes down to when should you try and fish these systems. Let's start with the spawn being when the huge fish move into this watershed. Then you have to deal with all the water moving through and the rips that get created. With the amount of water spilling into the canal, various rips will develop throughout the water column. Where are you going to target these hogs within all the flow. In what part of the “river of spillover” will these game fish stack up? Where will the bait that is being devoured be found. In The Spread will show you.
What kind of fishing tackle do you need to combat all the obstacles in the water and bring some giant fish under control. You are, in essence, big game fishing for snook. In this scenario, simple is the rule. Heavy rods that afford lifting power are critical. There are all sorts of rocks, pilings, docks, mangroves and flotsam to deal with. You will be using man sized portions of drag to turn these predators, in order to gain control or risk getting broken off. Find out what type of line is best suited for this combat snook fishing. Is it braid, mono, fluoro or wire? What are the recommended connections? Learn it all in this video.
The most important part of this equation may be the snook lures and bait fish that trigger king sized bites. Is it going to be artificial lures or live baiting? When do you use each? Which produce bigger fish? If you go with lures, should you use swimbaits, bucktails, soft plastics or plugs? What about the bait fish? Should you go with freshwater fish of saltwater fish? How do you keep them alive at the spillway and how should they be rigged?
