About Snook Fishing in Miami

Did you know that the snook’s scientific name is Centropomus undecimalis? They’re popular game fish in the Atlantic and are exciting catches for anglers because they tend to fight against the lures. They’re acrobatic fish with a sloping forehead, a protruding jaw, and black lines running along their sides.

They’re usually silvery with a greenish tint, and their fins can have yellow and black edges. The largest snook catch registered to date is 58 inches. Giant snook can grow quite large!


Essential information to remember when snook fishing in Miami is:

  • They are typically found in mangroves, estuaries, and coastal waters.
  • They are opportunistic feeders. Snook feeds primarily on smaller fish, live shrimp, and crustaceans.
  • Live bait and fly fishing for snook are among the most popular methods to catch them.
  • They can be found year-round in our waters but are more active during the warmer months.
  • Anglers are encouraged to practice catch-and-release.
  • The best tackles for snook fishing include swivels, snaps, and sinkers.
  • Snook are ambush predators, so we recommend bait and artificial lures that resemble their natural prey.
  • A medium to medium-heavy spinning or a baitcasting rod (7 to 8 feet) is ideal.
  • A spinning or baitcasting reel with a smooth drag system will make fishing for Snook easier.
