Same here on the snook basically on 3 straight casts. They were small 15-17 inches. But cool as ****.

They are excellent table fare. We cooks them all the time in Cozumel as they are abundant in the North Lagoons. If you ever go to Babbins Seafood Restaurant they sometimes have snook on their menu.

Snook is very good even big ones. There really is no shortage of snook but just a shortage around here in Texas.

"ROBALITO FRITO AL MOJO DE AJO"

My very favorite Mexican dish....a whole fried snook, covered in thin slices of fresh garlic, that have been sautéed in butter. These are mostly swordspine snook, a species that doesn't see north of 20 inches very often. They are netted and speared all throughout Mexico, yet never seem to see an appreciable decline in numbers, so they must be a more prolific subspecies. They are identified by the spine on the leading edge of the anal fin, which protrudes well beyond the soft rays. In the common snook, the spine is about the same length as the soft rays. Spines make great toothpicks after the meal, while you're waiting for your flan (dessert) to arrive.

Here's a picture I took at South Padre jetty years ago. These might be swordspine snook. They were pretty thick in the Honduras jungle when we fished there; we caught about 75 on rattletrap lures.
