One of the comments we at Fishin’ Frank’s hear all the time is, “I’m from Up North and I have no idea how to fish here.” If you resemble that remark, I have good news for you: You may know more than you realize. Freshwater fishing experience can apply to Florida saltwater fishing.
For example, snook are a lot like largemouth bass, except on steroids. Both are ambush predators that are usually structure-oriented, and both can be caught equally well on live or artificial baits. The types of areas that hold bass – docks, weedy shorelines, downed timber — are also often snook hotpots in our shallow backwaters and bays. The difference, of course, is that a snook is much stronger than a bass of similar weight and fights quite a bit harder. In general, saltwater fish are more powerful swimmers and tougher combatants than their freshwater counterparts.
