Prior to last week's front, the South Texas snook bite was going strong. Port Isabel guide Capt. Gencho Buitureira guided Cindy Chandler of Rosenberg to a nice ship channel snook (above left), while Port Mansfield guide Capt. Steve "JR" Ellis put his client, Law Rogers, on this massive snook at the Port Mansfield jetties. These were just a couple of the oversized snook anglers have landed recently. As winter sets, the South Texas snook bite will be heating up in the deep water areas.
