Last couple of weeks have seen the massive amount of sargassum on the beaches subside - allowing for some great sight fishing for snook.

Biggest of the season (caught by my dad) went just over 42 inches - non spillway, inlet, or beach fish by the way which is crazy.

Go to flies are a modified 'eat me' pattern representative of the pilchards and also throw a croaker imitation

If you google or look up "slob Snook" on wikipedia they have a picture of that one! That is a beauty; great job. That's only a couple inches from the new IGFA length world record.
BTW, how did you modify the eat me fly?

Thanks! For the EatMe it is really just a slight modification, but seems to work for me..

3 differences ... 1.) instead of stacking the fibers all on top of the shank I shape them to the sides a bit more similar to a traditional EP style baitfish pattern or the Scott Hamilton original 2.) Tie in a red collar (bleeding gills) on the underside prior to epoxy head. 3.) I dont bulge the epoxy head on top of the hook as much as the original EP - I typically have a much smaller head to avoid riding upside down.
