Default Red Snapper

My largest red snapper to date. I caught it while fishing off of the coast of Mexico Beach the first of July.

Nice!! How far off shore are you? Couldn't help but notice the trolling motor. I'd like to fish offshore daily when I retire. If I can do it in a boat that small I can start next week!��

Fishingaddict, I was 15 miles offshore. I have an Xpress 20' bay boat. It did weigh 20+ pounds. We caught so many of the endangered red snapper in two days of fishing that we would move frequently trying to get other species. They seemed to be everywhere we fished.

Awesome, I wish I'd had my boat when I was in port st Joe a few weeks ago but the weather was not cooperative.

That's a stud...congrats! Did you have any luck on other species? We were down in the spring and got into some mahi just off of Mexico Beach...I was surprised how close in they were.

Nice red!!!

I've been catching reef fish closer in than ever before. My runs are about 7 - 9 miles off Dauphin Island. Granted, I have good numbers but still. Its crazy how quickly the population has grown.

That sounds like a great trip! Glad your weather allowed for your trips offshore. I always seem to be fighting the winds in the Spring. Hoping to get back down there this fall.

Did you release it so that you could do your part to restore the nearly extinct snapper species? I hope not, dem good groceries!
