Good Snapper Fishing-Jupiter 7/29

Headed out of the Jupiter inlet early this morning, some thunder boomers were just lingering offshore. Lucky for us, they moved east and let us have a wonderful day on the water!

We set up shop on the 70 ft ledge just south of the Juno pier. Fished with cut sardines and squid.
The snapper bite was on early, and we had no problem putting them in the boat. Caught several varieties of snapper today, some nice Lane Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, and a couple of Mangrove Snapper.

As fast as the bite was "on", it turned off when Mr. Sun came out and the waters got very calm. Managed to put 6 Yellowtail, 2 Mangrove, 2 Lane, and also 2 Porgies in the cooler by 10AM.

Fished with my wife today, and we had a blast. Drank a few poptops and enjoyed the day on the water. Back to Blowing Rocks by Noon and home by 1:35 with two sacks of filets. Freezers lookin' good!

    Never even considered keeping Porgies, how do they taste?

    The large ones (+18inch) are definitely worth it!
    Not as clean smelling/taste as Mutton but fillets make great deep fry.

    Very white filets...take on whatever taste you make them with. Baked with crab meat, fried with batter, sautéed with mango chutney, all delicious. Porgy is my "flounder" down in Jupiter.

    Agree, Porgy, when large, is a nice tasty fish...

    Nice mix of Snapper there... But why is the one Mangrove in time-out? (facing backwards)... lol

    Porgy have become one of our go-to fish this year. White and yummy! Just had some last night with friends over, as a matter of fact.

    Nice day on the water for sure. I'm with everyone else, Porgy are very tasty. I think my favorite right now is whole grilled stuffed with cilantro, oregano, lime wedges,

    We do that with the yellowtail, also slice red peppers and onions, dribble with white wine and olive oil, wrap tight in aluminum foil, grill 6 minutes on each side. The cilantro and limes are wonderful
