Bass Angler to Saltwater Angler

Bass tournament angler and fishing rep Justin Swast from Missouri, came to visit Sanibel Island along with his beautiful girlfriend Jessica. He is an expert bass fisherman, so that means he would be great at Snook fishing with lures. While Jessica is not a pro angler, she definitely held her own fishing along side Justin the other day. Justin is a lure fisherman and that is right up my alley as far as my preferred fishing style. The two lures that Justin used the most were,a  Scaled Sardine twitch lure by Live Target and an artificial Rigged Shrimp also by Live Target Lures.

In total, we caught a lot of Redfish and some nice Snook. One Snook weighed about 10 plus pounds and Justin masterfully wrestled him out of boat dock pilings using only 10 pound test line. If you’ve done much Snook fishing, then you can appreciate that is no easy feat. One thing about bass fisherman, you NEVER have to tell them to set the hook.

Below are some pictures of Justin and Jessica’s fish that we caught that day.
