Snook, also called linesider, sergeant fish or robalo, are on of Florida's most sought after sport fish. All snook begin life as males, but between 18" to 22", some become females. When feeding, they face into the current and wait for prey to come to them. When hooked, snook jump clear out of the water and make a hard run, usually towards structure. They are excellent table fare but be careful of the razor-sharp gill covers. Snook cannot tolerate water temperatures below 60 degrees Fahrenheit and the frigid winter of 2010 killed over 100,000 snook statewide.
