The prefrontal bite was outstanding this week around Anna Maria Island, Barry and family enjoyed a countless day of catch and release Snook and Jack Crevalle along the deep Mangrove shorelines. Barry had the hot rod this trip boating a 30 inch Redfish, this was also his first Red he had ever caught, what a trophy it was. After we had our fill of Snook fishing we headed to the deep grass flats to put some Speckled Sea Trout in the cooler for dinner.

Mike Marshall and Ben had a great trip this week, We started the morning off chasing Snook around the mangroves and boy did they have their fill. We boated around 50 fish between the crew and ranging in size from 20-30 inches. The rise in water temperature really has the Snook excited, our best bite seems to be coming on live Pilchards hooked on 1/0 Owner Mutu Circle hook with a 5 foot leader of 20lb fluorocarbon.
