Cedar Key red snapper

We fished 6/11 and 6/12, limiting on both days.  The snapper were hungry in 70 ft over natural bottom.  Here's picture of Tuesdays catch. The largest fish was just shy of 23 inches.

    Solid trips. Yeah they are not too scarce. Just can't believe that a small take has been doable for a long time with no adverse effect if they had only let us. Oh well , may as well enjoy while we can !

    I need a bigger boat.

    We caught a couple of short grouper at the same spot we caught the red snapper when we were fishing baits near the bottom, but we switched to keeping the bait in the top half of the water column because that's where the bigger snapper were hanging out.

    Sigh!!! Maybe soon we'll get our 3 days of Atlantic Red Snapper. I may have to come over to the Gulf and get in on the action!. Nice haul!

    Nice work.   Looks like the weather is going to be bad for the rest of snapper season.
