Best Snook I Have Ever Caught!



Matt Finnesy aka YakkinMatt


Got out on the water on Saturday and boy am I happy I did. Not only was it a beautiful day but I caught my personal best Snook using my favorite topwater and had an absolute battle getting it to the yak!! Anyways here is the picture of the Snook once I landed it, however being as hyped as I was I 100% forgot to measure the fish but it was approaching 30" at least maybe more!There will be a video of the fight sometime this week just haven't had a chance to get around to it.

Winter Trip

Russ Caipen

I had the opportunity to hit the water for a few hours with HardCore brother Gian, aka Operation Home Shores, this past weekend and although it started off cold and windy, the conditions and bite slowly improved.

Image

A classic, winter, low tide had us targeting depressions and potholes for fish that were trapped and waiting for the flats to flood. We found a few Trout but the bite was slow until the water started to come in.

Gian saw a bunch of big Reds and thanks to his scouting technique, I hooked into one of them as we headed back to the launch.

Image

We stuck around and tried to hook to another but the school had moved on.

The Future!

Steve M. Gibson


My boy Jacob and I took a quick trip around the pond in our new Emotion tandem. He quickly surprised me and stood up and said he was going to find us some fish. He will be a future HardCore member for sure!
