Fn'C--Way to go on your first Snook. He's a little guy, but a Snook is a Snook. My first, way back in the day, I was a teen, was a little guy like that. I remember it like it was yesterday. They'll be many more to come. :toast:

You bet it did. My first permit from shore, I have never fished for them and I wasn't this time either. The strike was pure luck, I've casted in that same area many thousand of times over 9 years.
