View Full Version : Snapper season recap

07-15-2011, 04:46 PM
Just got back on the forum after a few year absence... not from fishing, but from posting. The following is a recap of the trips this year. i know I am missing some as Idid many more trips than this, but this will be a good start to get everyone stoked for the last weekend of snapper season.

Day after opening day we went out on the liquid living and had a very good day with a limit of snaps and some good firetrucks.
This is my best snapper so far this year, which is not saying much
**** got this one
Dave got a nice one
And this one almost pulled Cramer out of the boat... lol Just Kidding

After this I am missing some trip photos as we just didnt take pics. The next picture is from a dive trip/fishing trip where we got our limit of snaps, once again nothing to write home about, but we did some diving and I finally got into the shovelnose, and shot this pig firetruck
Ended up with a boat total of 36 shovels that day and I got 14 myself... Before that day I had only gotten a couple so I was happy that the lobster eyes finally worked.

I know I had a trip with Panhandler and we did well on snaps and a few nice red groupers, but he already posted that picture a while ago.

Next trip for which we have documentation was on Cramer's Parker the "Bottom Line"
Was a fun day with good friends and a few new friends.

This past Sunday, we did another trip on the Liquid Living, I had a client in town and we got him out fishing. We did get some real nice Groupers and one very nice Red Snapper... He weighed 12.5 on a hand scale. The Red Group was 16 on that scale.

As stated, I know there have been more, but I have problems taking pictures during good bites and although I have posted some, I really dont like dead fish pictures. They look so much better just out of the water.

As this is the last weekend for ARS, we will be back at it on the Porch on Saturday and the Liquid on sunday for some diving. Will give an update on Monday if I can remember to take photos. Good luck to all

That kind of talk is almost enough to make me want to go fishing.

I took the girls out for a few hrs, and caught.. I 'm gonna say 14 keepers. All female but released twice + as many for egg bearing / size. They were full and not one keeper male.
It was like walking the flats in the Bahamas. I had the boat in tow and a crab net when i notice this real cool shadow, and come to find it was these (very large) mullet. They seemed almost curious and as I stood motionless, then begun to move toward me. Looked like school of 50- 10lb. bones. Nothing close enough for my net casting abilities. I was just crabbin!:beer
