Young client lands trophy Siesta Key snook!
10 year old Andrew Robinson from Texas got the thrill of his angling life on a charter with me Thursday morning. We were fishing a rocky shoreline on the north end of Siesta Key in Big Sarasota Pass, casting large live shrimp tight to the rocks. We had caught a couple of small snook when Andrew hooked something that was MUCH larger. I used the electric trolling motor to put distance between the boat and the shore while the fish made a run, desperate to reach the safety of the structure. But, it was to be and our turn to win this battle, and after several minutes this nice snook came to the boat to pose for a quick photo with his dad Scott before being released to breed and battle again! Not all fishing charters produce a trophy, but this one did!!
