Default Red Snapper

Wanting to catch my first Red Snapper this year, can I get some help with some numbers within 9 miles or which rigs I may have a good chance to catch some? In a 19' Sea Pro, thanks for the help.

Just cast a line into any puddle, hard to keep em off the hooks.

A hook and a dog turd is all you need for snapper.

I was reeling in a 12' shark and 300 of them ate it.

Thanks I just spit Grizzly all over my screen! LoL

OP, just google "public reefs Pensacola, Florida" and you will find plenty of wrecks. Within 9 miles of the pass there are several wrecks/reefs from the Russian Freighter and "up."

Early in the season keepers are easy on the close in stuff. Light in the season they can be a bit more tricky! As for lead while snapper fishing....what lead?
