That is one helluva snapper. I've seen some 15-20 pounders caught in the bay but that is some catch. Now that I have a ten mph boat that catch gives me some hope!

First post. No real info. GIANT "bay" snapper?

I'm not calling bull, but I'm not buying it as the Gospel just yet.

Wherever you caught that, it's badazz.

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt">After loading up on ladyfish and hard tails along the beach we moved back into the bay just in time to set up for shark fishing around dusk. Tide was running hard so instead of our preferred slow drift we dropped the anchor. It didn?t take long before a drag was singing . . . then a splash . . . nice spinner shark. Few minutes later two poles go off. We boated another spinner and a sand shark. It was at this time my drag started to run. I figured it was just another 4-5 foot shark. After a few minutes I saw end of the 9 foot steel leader, grabbed it and began to pull the fish along the boat. I was in utter disbelief. It took more than a few seconds for my brain to believe my eyes. Then I let out a shout. If you were fishing even in the distant vicinity I should really apologize for the language. There was only a select list of worlds that even began to make sense of what I was seeing. Sure I?ve heard of snapper in the bay, I?ve even caught a few smaller ones, but none like this. By this time I just got giddy or something, I don?t know why, but I thought it would be a good idea to try to lift this monster snapper into the boat by the leader, luckily my friend stopped me and we used the net. I don?t know why, but the net never crossed my mind. I just wasn?t thinking clearly. After a few pictures we had to sacrifice the soda for room in the cooler, even then she really didn?t fit. Caught at least one more really nice spinner shark (lots of action from the spinners) , then the tide slacked off and so did the fishing, maybe one more sand shark. We packed it up around midnight. So, for the record this 27 lb snapper was caught in Pensacola Bay while fishing for sharks using a 9 foot steel leader and half a hard tail. I?ve included another picture of the snapper and two of my friend landing a nice spinner.
