Today was our first trip of the red snapper season on the new (to us) 36’ Yellowfin. Nice to put some blood on the vessel. A great group of guys and all had a blast on the trip. Looking forward to getting on board again.

    Well with this big blow coming up for weekend. We put the Yellowfin up in the barn. I had a friend ask me to run his bay boat down the beach for a few inshore grouper.  Well I agreed as a fresh grouper dinner would be nice tonight. Well at the end of day we Blackened up a few grouper and it was right tasty.

    I haven’t fished that area in a few years. But last time we r snap fished we caught em from 60’~100’. Might get more replies and better info if you post on Northwest forum. btw always enjoying fish out of  conch house marina and resort. Hope to head that way soon.

    Well one of the guys on that trip played college football for  Clemson. He also spent time in the NFL. After he boated a AJ  he looked at me. I never knew a fish could fight like that. lol
