Beach Snook fishing set up

So, I see all those guys out there with there 8oz pyramid sinkers with wire leader and there 12ft beach rods. Well let me tell you something, they wont be catching many snook, if any. If you want to catch beach snook you just need to keep it plain and simple, whether you have a live bait or an artificial. My beach fishing combo is something like this. A size 2500 reel with a 7 or 7 1/2 ft medium action rod loaded with 8-10lb test mono or 15lb braid if there is a lot of weeds or I am fishing near some rock piles. Attached to my main line with a double uni knotĀ  is 20 to 40lb fluorocarbon leader along with a 1/0 live bait hook (unless using artificial). Below I have shown some of my favorite choices of these products.
