I myself was pretty jealous. I have never caught one. Apparently my prior post on the matter rattled a few people. Got my first “Reddie” in 5 years. (Thanks). Guess the streak died. Lol. Either way, that’s a great catch and hope to get one myself someday. I just don’t know if I will cause I’m a Goober! Hehe

Outstanding!
I grew up in the Valley and fished a lot in the LLM when I was young, NEVER caught a snook though, I'm going down there later this month, would LOVE to catch one.

Never caught one in Texas, but caught a bunch of bigguns in Fla... I'd love to catch one here.
Congratulations to you sir on a fine trophy catch!! Pound for pound, one of the most viscous and hard fighting fish in the water! The ones I've caught were all while wading the mangroves along the West coast of Fla. and they are a feat to accomplish landing one in waist deep water and no net... gotta stay away from those gill plates! They're like razor blades!!

Nice catch. Here is a link for those interested in a short concise history of snook by Texas Parks and Wildlife.

Bill, thanks for posting that. That was an interesting read. I have caught enough of them here in the LLM to say that while not "Rare", they are uncommon, at least in my experience. I have probably lost as many as I have landed between having a light leader cut on their gill plates and just having them come unbuttoned after seeing them jump. If you look closely at their mouths, there is not a lot of flesh to sink a hook. It is mostly membrane and bone, I think a lot of time the hook gets set in the membrane and pulls loose under pressure or starts to wear a large enough hole that the hook detaches. In any case they are an incredible fight and a truly heart stopping blow up on a top water!
