Jeff. hadn't fished it lately. Last few times we wen't through there we picked up alot of small stuff. It seems like the Snapper is running alot of the other stuff off. If you fish it, don't be affraid to drop and move. Good Luck.

You surely aren't talking about the near extinct red snapper.

Jeff,
Sounds like you have a good range of travel. If you want to hunt mongo mingo, trigger, grouper and Aj's try the edge (natural bottom.) I've had some success doing the following:

Start Here N29 55.739 W087 10.136 troll or motor west toward N29 55.087 W087 11.756 and watch your bottom machine for good markings. ie like you see when finding a wreck but it will be rock ledges with depths ranging from 145' - 220'.

You will mark several New Spots after a half hour or so then go back and drift over the "New Spots" and send down a double drop rig with #2 or #3 circles hooks with 30-60lbs flouro leader rigs tipped with squid. Move from New Spot to New Spot until you find the bite. Once you find bite you can set anchor and fill your coolers or keep on exploring the remaining "New Spots".

Also, this time of year is great for chumming Black Fin and many other pelagics such as wahoo, AJ's, Kings and a dolphin or 2.

Hope this helps!

Jimmy
