Question Fall snapper season question

So now that we know we have a few weeks in Oct to fish for ARS, I am wondering how it will differ from the summer months fishing for snapper.

Hopefully there will be less thunderstorms? Can we expect to find a better variety of fish at public spots (I am thinking some will move in closer as water cools)? At the end of June I noticed even keeper size snapper were hard to find at the public spots south of Dauphin Island due to pressure that had been on them. Do you expect numbers and size of snapper to be up in October when compared to June?

I have fished offshore only in summer months...please excuse the dumb questions.

You won't sweat as much, but who knows about the weather. As far as quality fish out of DI, I would run SE and get to some deeper water for the bigger sows. You have to run way south from there to get in any kind of good water, IMO.
