This is the fish that everyone wants to catch.
Snook are known for their top water hits, line
burning runs, and down right "meanness."
This great gift to our area waters is receiving
the conservation attention that will protect and

The common snook is the most abundant of the four
species and is designated as a species of special
concern in Florida. It will be the focus for the
rest of this list. Snook can tolerate a wide range
of salinity and may be found in fresh water. However,
they are extremely sensitive to temperature and

containing snook may claim many lives due to the
rapid drop in water temperature.
are known as "ambush feeders" meaning
that they'll surprise attack their prey as it
swims or moves into range. This occurs especially
at the mouths of inlets where currents play a
role while the snook waits in hiding behind bridge
pilings, rocks, or other submerged structures.
Besides preying on small fish, snook also feed
on shrimp, crabs, and mollusks. Snook are very
popular with recreational anglers due to their
strong fighting spirit and mild, delicate flavor.
