Default Red Snapper inshore?

I caught a red snapper inshore today fishing from the shore at pcola Naval Air Station. Is that normal? I thought snapper was an exclusivly off shore fish.

I have caught some BIG snappers in our bay.. I would say the biggest one way close to 26" or so.. maybe bigger.. rarely measure the inshore snappers.. just glad to see one over 16" haha

I feel like the bay snapper are growing in numbers too over the past decade of so much regulation.. I know of a few spots on the Navy Base where they open it to fishing sometimes.. I can assure you I could horse up a legal grouper and snapper pretty damn easily..

That is not a Red Snapper. They are extended. You have caught a Sheep Head with a sun burn.
