The Catch
Snapper (Red)

What a great opening day for Snapper season!  Gulf Life Charters had a party of six on board for a full day trip. The seas could not have been more cooperative. We headed out around 6 am and enjoyed the 1 foot seas. We loaded up the live well with live bait, which is always a favorite for customers. Then we headed off to Captain Jesse’s Snapper Holes. The bite was fierce. Our first stop was pulling in some decent sized keepers but we decided to move on to try a few other places until we found the honey hole. The Snapper are big this year! They were jumping on the line as fast as we could drop a bait down. We ended up catching our limit by mid day. Around lunch time Captain Jesse fired up the grill and everyone enjoyed the hot dogs & hot wings the customers brought to celebrate a fantastic opening day. The catch of the day was a Red Snapper weighing in at over 25 pounds. We can’t wait to get back out there and slay them again! Tight Lines - Gulf Life Charters
