FPI Snapper / Phin

Highlight pics from this weeks trips.  Snapper have been tough, I was lucky enough to find some areas with some willing to eat putting together a decent box of Groves and muttons some had some size to them, all caught on knocker rigs / cut bait.  Grover is 25", Mutton 31.5.  Had a double phin hookup today a 20-25lb cow which shook the hook boatside and landed the 15lb bull.

    Nice haul! Haven’t heard of much action besides the night snapper bite. Talked to a diver yesterday, he was out Friday and recorded Mid 50’s on the 80’ offshore bar.

    Were you in 50’ or closer to the beach? Guessing north of inlet.
