9/5 Evening Family IRL Snapper Trip
Took the skiff out Saturday evening for a quick snapper trip. Cast netted a boat load of thread-fin at one of the islands. Anchored up and started catching right away. The bite was pretty hot. Caught lots of mangroves and mutton snappers. Caught our share of junk too. My son had fun trying out his little pole. The wife caught a 4lb lady. I hooked one fish, ran me all over the place taking screaming drag runs. Thought maybe a jumbo lady but it never jumped. It sorta surfaced as a 200lb shark grabbed it. I swear it looked just like a king fish. Maybe a big spanish mack. I'll never know.
