Snook Fishing License


Here in Florida you have to have a Snook stamp in addition to your saltwater fishing license. It is a $10 charge for a year for a Snook stamp. A year is from the date you purchased it till that date the following year. It isn’t for the time of the open season. You can catch snook without a stamp but you can’t keep them. A Florida saltwater fishing license is around $17.

Snook have to be between 28″-32″.

It is a pretty narrow margin but there are plenty of opportunities to catch monster Snook here in the state of Florida. There are certain times of the year when they can be fished. The season is currently open from now till December 15th 2015. Then it will open back up at some point again next year. This is the only inshore saltwater fish that is seasonal and requires a stamp.

When the Snook is out of season you can still fish for them but you can’t keep them. I have yet to catch a keeper Snook but I have heard it is one of the best eating fish out their. I hope to have the opportunity to get one soon. Once I do I will be sharing my catch on my blog. Have fun fishing, wether it be in Florida or somewhere else. Fishing always brings good times.


About Nick

I am currently a fireman in Central Florida on the east coast. I have a lot of time off due to my work schedule and I fish every chance I get. I own a Gheenoe boat and fish Mosquito Lagoon area. I do not have a fishing business yet but that is my goal sometime in the near future. I hope to upgrade my boat to a flats boat soon. For now I just share my knowledge of fishing and pictures of the Intra Coastal in Florida. Thanks for checking out my site.
