LOXAHATCHEE RIVER SWORDSPINE SNOOK

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

Small, but unique, the swordspine snook is a "happy" fish and great fun on the fly. At the right time and tide the Loxahatchee River near Jupiter, FL has them in pretty good numbers. This was a windy 15/20 knot morning too windy for fishing out in the open, but tucked into the magroves I could get out of the wind. Brown and gold tinsel Clouser, Ross 8-foot 6-weight FlyStik. Some small ladies showed up too. All these fish were really dark. Pretty place to fish, pretty morning - except for billions of no-see-ums!!!.

The smaller snook of the cool months are a wonderful contrast to the big boys of summer. Any size, they're a great gamefish and very addictive. besides the fish in the Lox, I was very happy to see many, many small snook around the docks in several places from Stuart to Jupiter. The big freeze two winters ago really put a dent in the population. Glad to see to it's rebuilding. The future looks bright.
