"Specializing in nighttime Trophy Snook Fishing"


Capt. Dave Pomerleau


NO SNOOK NO PAY's that simple!



Captain Dave Pomerleau, aka "The Mad Snooker" is known by many as the best Big Snook Guide in the state.  Capt. Dave has been chasing Snook for over 28 years, and a full time guide for the last 10.  He is U.S.C.G. licensed and specializes in night Snook fishing. The primary reason for night fishing is that Snook are nocturnal feeders. They will eat in the daylight hours, but not even close to the way they eat at night.

In the last 28 years, Capt. Pomerleau and his anglers has caught well over 70,000 Snook, including one larger than the current recognized state record. 280 of these Snook were 25 lbs. or more. Thousands of them were in the high teens to mid twenties. FLTC Guarantees you will catch a Snook aboard a charter with Capt. Dave or your charter is free.  These “Night” trips average 30 to 50 Snook per trip, fishing waters, which are glass calm, and as well lighted as a Walmart parking lot.

The photos found by clicking on the “Monster Snook Photos” link below represents only a small percentage of the many happy anglers Capt. Pomerleau has had the privilege to take fishing.  

If you like to catch a lot of Snook and you don't like a sunburn, extreme heat or even dehydration, then a charter with Florida's #1 nocturnal Snook guide would be a very productive and memorable experience.

Coverage Area:  West Central & Southwest Florida from Clearwater & Tampa Bay south to Venice & Boca Grande/Charlotte Harbor.  Location depends in season, tide, moon phase and "Where" the largest concentrations of BIG Feeding Snook have been in recent nights!


Species Targeted:  Snook Only

Methods:  Light Tackle to Heavy Spin & Plug Tackle.  Tackle determined by location. 

Maximum Anglers:  Three

Boat:   Just built......24' Robin with all of the bells and whistles.  Customized for night Snook Fishing.  Picture to come shortly.
