    Another nice trip for you, nice work. Do you guys keep the underwater lights on when you are snapper fishing at night?

    Yes! Lots of bait and squid caught back there. I think it helps draw in the larger fish for the flatlines

    Some really nice Mangs in that mix. WTG, the new zuke is treating you well. The WWII fighter plane flyover was too cool, I saw it as well.

    Awesome catch, I think I saw that fly over too. The one I saw they were really close together and heading towards St Pete. I was actually impressed how close they got and they were able to hold steady like they were. Congrats again on the great full moon bite you had!

    Nice trip! Looks like some good eats for a while. That boat looks more like a sports car than a boat.
