The Catch
Snapper (Red)

Opening day finally came for red snapper 2016.  It was not disappointing at all. Plenty of reds and some gag grouper.    With one big boy. That made for a good meal.      Not surprising to find the snapper at less than 8 miles out.    A good chum bag.  Plenty of mackerel was all it took. To limit out. In about 2 hours.      This weekend snapper is going to be a great thing provided the weather gods good.      I hope everyone can get a day out there to experience this awesome time on the reef.  It’s a great time pulling up some awesome dinner.  Good luck and get your fish on.    Capt LD Hatfield
