  4. Cheap Snook Lures

    Fishing Techniques: Most snook are taken on lightly-weighted or un-weighted baits of whitebait, anchovy or pilchards on ganged hooks or single, long-shanked hooks. They also fall to fish flesh strips, small live baits and pieces of squid. These baits should be a lightly weighted and kept moving. A gentle jigging motion will often attract snook. Snook are also keen lure-takers and fall to slow-trolled spoons, jigs, feathers and minnows, particularly on weighted lines or behind paravanes. Eating Qualities: The snook is a very good to excellent table fish, much prized in southern waters. The fish's flesh is white, moist and sweet, although a little soft. Care should be taken not to bruise the meat, and all snook should be cleaned promptly after capture.

    soft plastics.. and pretty much any hard body.. Green/silver/blue/red+white , when on they bite they are not really fussy.. and metal salmon lures are fine too.

  10. HELP me Pickling Scallops

    i do love pickled seafoods.. tommie fillets and gar fillets where a favourite for us as kids. scallops/razor fish.. hmmmm my step father always used a spiced vinegar mix, think he actually bought it. then topped it up with a few extras such as chilli and garlic.. the good thing about food is.. we all like different flavours so its just a world of experiments!
