Default Sunday was a great day to be on the water, Red Snapper, 28 Sept

Headed out about 530 AM Sunday to aspot for some Snapper. The day was great. I took my Step-Son, Zack out with me this time. We find our spot anddrop theanchor andsentthree lines toward the bottom.By 7 am we had one keeper Red Snapper in the boat and catching alot ofjunior red snapperand a few mingos'. The Dolphin's were out as well, chasing down eachfish that we released. Zack hooks up on what looks to be apossible keeper, Gets it about 10 feet from the boat and the same dolphin he was just loving to have a chance to play with just stole his fish on the line. I messed with Zack for a bit then wentback to fishing. About 8am I was on fire. No matter wich rod I used I was catching Red Snapper and Mingos. Hit the bottom, reel about 5-6 times then sit. I don't think I waited more than 3-4 minutes before it was on again, pulling in another fish and watchfor the dolphins at the same time.We gotour limit that day and then helped a few others get theirs. seemed like everyone was on the wreck but not many people other than me was catching fish regulary. Maybe bait choice, line, hookset-up, not sure but it worked that day. Best luck since June. What a beautiful day out there.







Dead Cig's were the bait of choice.We had a box of the frozen4-5"and also a bag of frozen 6"+. Line was 40lb. Ande mono, hooks were just normal 1,2 Circle hooks. I set them up like a stinger but still using mono and no steel leader. 2oz weight Carolina style. With about 3ft of leader. I will post pics later when I get to the house.



I don't know what everyone else was using but there were about 6 boats out near us by 10am.

The guy next to us was using Live Ruby Reds, hooked up 3 times but only 1 time got into the boat, Amber Jack, but 1" too short. We were out about 8-9 miles on a wreck.

The mass is one of my favorite spots to stop, if nothing else just for the history of it since you can see the barrel at low tide. My corrdinates are off of Divespot.com. you can go there and find the wreck. It will get you close but it is not right on.

Ya dead Cig's were our big hitter, we had squid but it just stayed in the cooler, we never changed bait the whole time.

Thanks guys. Yes Zack had a blast out there. The last time I took him the weather wasn't cooperating and the wind was kicking pretty bad, needless to say it was a wet ride and not fun for him.I am greatful that this time he had a lasting memory of this trip.

If I can work it, I might camp on the 11th at McCrea. But I don't know anyone out there or where exactly to camp. I have been there before but not when there were alot of boats pulled into the area. I am not new to the area, I have been here for almost 3 yrs but was married for 2 of them and no boat, so I have my boat and not married .Now I amseeing and experiencing new great things about Pensacola. Too bad that it is almost time for me to transfer somewhere else.
