The Common snook, which is also known as robalo or sergeant fish, is a true fighter and one of the largest snooks. Common snook take the environment very much into consideration; even a slight change in their surroundings can have a significant impact on their behavior and where to find them. Snook fishing involves a lot of hunting and a fair amount of luck, which is why landing a big snook is considered a true feat.
