Fishing for fish close to the mangrove trees in SW Florida can get a little tricky. Especially when you hook into a Snook or Redfish. This past week I hooked into a Snook about ten feet away from the mangrove shoreline. After a few jumps he proceeded to pull me in the mangroves. My fishing line got twisted around some branches as I was trying to keep a tight line on the fish. I finally managed to free myself from the branches and pushed my way back to open water. To my surprise the Snook was still on my line and I managed to get him to the kayak.
