CR/Ozello Snook on Gold Spoon

What an amazing day it was for some fishing out of Ozello North just south of Crystal River. After hitting the backwater islands sight and missing some nice reds, I headed out toward an open flat just inside of Mullet Key. Earlier I landed a 20″ snook, but was target redfish, so I went to a Gold Spoon search trusted by many…I confess, I have yet to catch a red on a gold spoon yet…working around a flat inside of Mullet Key, I came to a grassy oyster bed that looked promising and on my second cast, boom! A solid underslot 24″ Snook hammered the Gold Spoon…what a nice surprise on the flat. It was the second and biggest snook on the day, and my first on a gold spoon…I am convinced these spoons are probably will be one of my favorite go to lures as I learn how to work them with each cast and catch. On the day I landed two other snook on paddletail soft plastics, and a my first multi-spotted, 3-spot redfish. I couldn’t find the trout or flounder for an inshore slam, but overall had a nice day exploring some new spots.
