Area fishing guide Capt. Rich Knox is finding nice sized Snook from New Port Richey, Tarpon Springs to Clearwater,Florida, the best bait at this time is a full blown horse minnow (pilchard), followed by a good sized threadfin hering to a grunt or pinfish on the sand, using light tackle spinning rods spooled with 10-15 lb.teast Spiderwire Ultra-Cast with a 4-5′ piece of flourocabon leader and ayour favorite live bait or circle hook to match the size of your bait ! Cast uptide of the fish and let the natural speed of the current sweep your offering into them, when you feel the bump reel fast until your tight on the fish then set the hook one good time and hold on !
