Default Snapper gone

Is it me or did all the snapper just leave all the wrecks? I have not marked any fish all week. Any ideas? And what is up with the bait this year? Wednesday you could catch all the bait you wanted at the mass for the first time this year and today nothing at all

The popular public wrecks have seen more fishing pressure in the past two weeks than any two week period in the history of the earth. There are still more snapper than anytime in my lifetime. When you pull up on a spot in 120 - 140' and see the snapper swimming around 20' down before you drop a bait there are a lot of them out there.

I'm seeing big snapper, keep at it and you will find them.
Good luck!

Agreed. I went diving in the middle of about a dozen boats on the Russian Freighter today. The wreck was picked clean, not a red snapper in sight.

Went out this morning and we limited out on snapper at a wreck. So they are definitely still there.

Picked clean?...the freighter & alike public near shore wrecks snappas have been invaded by nasty lead and hook lines and "RUDE ASS" divers for 18 days now.

Because of all the tangle anchor lines and loud confrontations between the two, they've had enough and simply relocated to a quieter resort til this madness ends sometime in July...Late July, they'll be back running off the "in season species"...

If you want some snappas, do your time and spend it on other than the most popular wrecks. jk,,,don't bother, them snappas are all gone!

With Charter boats running 2-3 trips every day, with around 1124 of them , the population has been wore down . It's going to be very hard to find them till after the spawn.
