One of our most informative shows with Captain Rick Grassett from Sarasota, Florida.   He fishes nearshore and inshore in the late fall and catches several  species that are great fun and tackle busters.  Allen and Rick discuss the fun of catching ‘trash’ fish; and about Rick’s recent tournament which helped raise funds for Mangrove Coast Fly Fishers and CCA.

Most important are Captain Rick’s methods of using and rigging DOA jigs and plastics as well as the Rapala Skitterwalk.  And also, the secret fly-Grasset’s Snook Minnow:

Snook Fishing with Capt Rick Grassett

Snook Fishing with Capt Rick Grassett

Captain Rick Grasset joins the Awesome Fishing Radio Crew to talk about Snook Fishing. Capt. Grassett fishes from Tampa Bay North to Charlotte Harbor South with most of his fishing done in the Sarasota area.  He is an Orvis Endorsed guide and works with CB Outfitters.  While we know him as a fly fishing guide he is equally good with light tackle.  This show features insight into night time snook fishing and what flies and to use, and salt water light tackle fishing.  We spend some time on redfish and gator trout and how they can be a pleasant bonus when mixed into our snook fishing.

Terminal Non-Slip Loop Knot

Tie an overhand knot in the standing part of the line
Go through the hook eye
Pull back through the overhand knot-go in the same way you came out-ie if the tag came out on top, go in on top.
Wrap the tag around the tag around the standing line two to 5 times-bigger line fewer wraps.
Back Through the overhand knot, again the same way as before.
Tighten by pulling tag and standing line, hook will be dangling in the loop!
