    MLK Day snapper trip

    My family went to Disney for our annual trip this weekend and we got back yesterday afternoon. I had the day off of school for MLK day and the weather lookeded good for a trip offshore. I called a few buddies and we did the first trip of 2013 in my boat and it was a good one. We fished 90-100ft. and the mangroves were chewing. Most fish were caught on light jigs or knocker rigs. We headed in around 1:30 and had over 30 mangroves and a handful of red grouper. The biggest snapper was just shy of 25". It was a great day. We stopped at a friends restaraunt on the way in and he cooked a few snapper for us. Fried, blackened and jerk. Yummy. Thanks Dave!!

    I thought about heading out but the wind was whipping pretty strong out of the NW. Looks good on the water though.

    Wow, nice Mangs, some goozers there. What are those grayish fish y'all are taking photos of, they have spots, kind of like dark kiss marks, nice fish whatever they were.

    Yeah - they look familiar, but I never see them when I'm not out in the Gulf. Something rare, I guess.
