3rd Annual SNOOKTOPIA 2019 Jupiter

Aug-22-19 6:00 AM - Aug-25-19 6:00 PM

Free Event
Bring family and friends to enjoy a long weekend of chasing snook in the Loxahatchee River. This area is historically known to hold some of Florida’s largest snook. Big tarpon, jacks and sharks are very common in the river too. So bring appropriate gear.
Camping or cabins are available within the park. It’s going to be hot so come prepared.
My name is Bart Swab I grew uo fishing the river with my Dad and brother in the 80s and early 90s.This is something I’ve done since moving away from South Florida. It’s a lot of fun, I hope to see you there.
Thursday–Launching from the park in the AM and fishing within a comfortable kayaking distance to check the backwater action. Hopefully the snook are stacked back there. For the exotic fish guys and girls this is a great day to drive a hour south to Lake Ida West or one of the many other areas to chase them. Not a busy day on the water. Weekends have mad boat traffic in the lake and surrounding canals.
Thursday night — Sawfish or Burt Reynolds park. Fishing lights and/or soaking bait until…… I like to check both backwater and near inlet first. That will let us know where the better fishing is this year. Rain, discharge and seasonal snook movement is always a factor of finding them. It’s part of the fun.
Friday—(Big Day) Launching from Either the Johnathan Dickinson launch and going to Burt Reynolds or run it the other way. After last year we are going to let the winds decide more than the tides. 🏝
As quickly or as slow as you want to go.
We’ll be out there all day and most of the night.
Saturday—1130am-330pmish Lunch/social/escape-heat, midday at a local restaurant. TBA
Saturday night— Snook’n in the river. Link up with new and old friends to enjoy a evening fishing the river.

    I apologize for the time this has taken to make our final decision.After looking at the past years of our beloved Casting for Cats Womens fishing tournament our number of lady anglers has dropped each year, in order to keep up with our ever changing time Casting for Cats will be changing it’s format. Now we will include women anglers fishing with there Captain or there husband to become a team event We will still have a Grand Champion female angler but we will also have other division . We are hoping this change will bring in more anglers male and female to cover the cost we all incurred by having tournaments. With this new change we now will be challenged with a new set of rules to make it fun and fair for all. We feel we need to ”Paws” to make these changes . We have just booked the Islander Resort for Oct.17 and 18 2024 . Thank you for so many years of your support we greatly hope this change will keep this tournament here for many years to come.
