A great day fishing in Stuart with Captain George Gozdz (host of the Florida Sportsman Fishing Show “Reel Time”).
Katie and I landed around 20 Snook and at least as many Jacks. The largest Snook was around 20 Lbs and had a massive head that could easily swallow a softball. Hooking and landing these ambush predators around the harbor obstructions is a real challenge. Our hook to land ratio was only around 20% using 40 Lb. braided line and 40 Lb. fluorocarbon leader. We believe that we had a few fish that could have tipped the scales at over 30 Lbs but we were unable to land them (nor did we even see some of them).
More to follow as we now shift the Spring Field Campaign to Boca Raton.
