"I can't imagine going on a better fishing trip than with good quality friends for big spawning snook on the beach," explains Captain Richard. Long time college buddy Girard Middleton and now his new life friend Jeff Thummel showed a fishing guide how to have a great time as these two expert anglers battled snook that Captain Richard had been staking out for several days in the summer.
"All I had to do is show these two the fish and let them at them! Jeff and Girard made quick work of loads of big spawning snook off Cocoa Beach and the Canaveral Seashore," explains Richard. "Every year the snook make their appearance on the beach between June and August and it's an important time for the snook to spawn and it's been banner especially since the snook are officially a gamefish and have strict regulations."
You'll see Jeff catch some nice snook while Captain Richard and Girard work the camera and share in the fun. Jeff hooks a monster that he can't turn and Richard finishes the movie with a snook the boys allowed him to catch thile they played the role of guide. It's a smash of a snook on the beach movie and you should really enjoy these guys catching some great snook on the beach.

Snook in East Central Florida have many different habitats and conditions that make them a great target for anglers looking for variable ways to catch this elusive fish. Juvenile fish can be caught in the estuaries, canals and backwater areas almost all year long. While not as prestigious as large breeder snook, they are non-the-less enjoyable to catch and will bite on everything from baitcasters to flyrods and everything between. Juvenile snook are suckers for artificial's and readily take live bait as well.
Big breeding snook spawn on or near the beaches of Central Florida and always have a passageway or access to the beaches or inlets available to them. The only time a breeder snook is generally caught in the backwaters here is because it's a cooler transitional time period usually. Canaveral snook spend their winter months in the Port under docks, wharfs and around other structure like boats and pilings. You often see them hanging around the lights at night in small and large schools. Sebastian Inlet Snook are caught in the inlet itself during the summer and fall months and many of the larger snook migrate south to Jupiter Inlet or hunker down in the fresh warmer water of the Sebastian River a short distance away.
