Tarpon and Snook Fishing
We fish the ocean 99% of the time during September October and November, 73% of the time from January thru March, 93% of the time during April, May and June. Snook can be caught by anyone coming to Silver King Lodge. Our guides also know all the best haunts of the monster snook. Those who choose to fish the river mouths have a chance of catching record size snook while those fishing the rivers in the traditional manner will tend to catch fish in greater numbers. In the months of December and January the "calba" or fat snook migrate up the rivers to spawn. These snook can be caught in great numbers - 20 to ? - in just a few hours. They are not as big as normal snook ranging in weight from 6 to 10 pounds but fight just as hard. Tackle is medium light with 8 to 12 pound test line preferred. Some guests use ultra light spinning tackle but it should be remembered that tarpon lurk in the same waters with the snook and many giant snook turn out to be tarpon over 100 pounds.
