*** NOTE: The paddle with the blue triangle has sold. ***
Pick any single painted wood paddle for $75.00, or pick any four painted paddles from our inventory for $250.00.
Paddles in this group are about 58 inches tall. At the widest end they measure about 8 inches wide.
Our paddles are hand painted, so no two are just alike. We use oil base paint for the colors, and each paddle is finished off with exterior grade clear coat.
These paddles can be used, or they make great nautical décor! I am not a professional artist, so not every line in my designs are perfect, but then again, this is what makes my paddles perfect in my opinion.

This small carved Snook on rough cut cypress wood measures 24 inches long and about 12 inches tall. The thickness of this piece of carved wood is about 2 inches.
The common snook is an estuarine-dependent fish species. Within estuaries, juvenile common snook are most often found inhabiting areas such as coastal wetland ponds, island networks, and creeks. Despite being a euryhaline species of fish, common snook do show a tendency to gravitate towards lower salinity conditions in the early stages of their life. By being able to adapt and thrive in both high and low salinity conditions through osmoregulation, common snook display a high level of habitat plasticity. Common snook are opportunistic predators whose feeding habits indicate that there is a positive relationship between their size and the size of their prey, meaning that as the snook grows it feeds on larger and larger prey. Common snook have been found to occasionally engage in cannibalistic activities, though this behavior is rare. This usually occurs during the winter months when adult and juvenile common snook are in close proximity to one another within their estuarine habitats. This form of cannibalism where the juveniles are fed on by the adults is referred to as intercohort cannibalism. The adult common snook who do cannibalize juveniles most likely target them due to the fact that the juveniles may be the largest of the available prey, and are therefore more nutritionally efficient to prey upon.

Most popular fishing areas are along shell bars and rocky or grassy shorelines and on shallow flats, where they are usually fished by sight. Reds also forage in the surf of outside beaches nearly everywhere on the Gulf Coast and along the upper half of the East Coast, especially in the fall. Adults move offshore to spawn and are sometimes encountered in open water in large schools. They roam into coastal rivers and creeks at any time of year, and in winter swarm into them, seeking warmer water.
