Join us for our monthly meeting as Brett Fitzgerald, Executive Director of the Snook & Gamefish Foundation, discusses snook biology and how-to fishing. The sort of stuff that you can really use when you are traveling and fishing, when you don’t know the spots or have go-to holes where you have the ‘sure thing.’ A little understanding of their biology and behavior can really help you prospect new spots! Plus some general snook stuff, conservation stuff, offshore happenings, etc
