Snook are wide spread along the West Atlantic Ocean from the shores of the U.S. all the way to South America. YouTube broadcasts footage of some incredibly huge snook. Few things get a saltwater fisherman as fire up as a long black lateral line, especially if it is three feet long or more. Each of the top five snook fishing videos in this list, features a good look at a big snook. Though these fish are as tasty to eat as they are fun to catch, I am confident that the majority of the snook in these videos were released. The U.S. has established size and quantity limits to these sneaky shrimp eaters and I know there will be many more snook fishing videos to come. So, until you find a way to get out and actually set the hook on one, you might as well enjoy the five best snook fishing videos published on YouTube.
5) “BIG SNOOK FISHING”

I like the close up look at this huge snook caught in the Lower Keys. This snook fishing video features a great look at a snook in the hands of an angler at night. It’s long black line is easy to see as this snook is quickly released to be caught another day.

This snook fishing video is filmed on the East Coast of Florida. Using a live mullet, this angler hooks a large snook from the rocks. The camera follows a frantic scramble to the water as this fish is pulled quickly to the sand. The fish is held for the camera, a fine catch!
3) “Snook fishing in captiva”

I was impressed with this snook fishing video. The anglers are fishing on the West Coast of Florida. The scene is set in a boat with the angler cranking on a big snook. The captain handles the fish smoothly with a Boga Grip and holds this 33″ snook proudly for the camera. A quick release marks the quick end to a short and sweet snook fishing video.
2) “LUNKERDOG SNOOK FISHING Big snook No Shark this time”
published in 2007 by oranse
40 seconds is all it took to place this snook fishing gem on the top five list. Filmed in low light, this snook is big enough to be seen in the water as it thrashes on the end of the line. I couldn’t believe when this giant female snook is hoisted out of the water, she is big…
1) “Biggest Snook Ever Broadcasted”
published in 2006 by captchancey
With such a striking title, this snook fishing video has to be number one. The sheer size of this amazing monster snook blows my mind. Capt. Ben Chancey published this footage as another “Chew On This” episode. The first few seconds of this top video feature highlights of the fight and even show the fish being lifted out of the water.
