Tuesday
east winds around 15 knots becoming southeast in the
afternoon. Seas 2 to 3 feet. Bays and coastal waterways mostly
choppy. Slight chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Thumbs up USS O 26 mi off shore

Back in Ohio, On the 28th I went 26 miles off shore to the USS O out of Pensacola pass. 2-3 ft rollers could only run 25 mph so I wouldn't pound. Finally 200 ft. deep and as I went over the carrier it was 140 ft. Dropped a line down hit bottom cranked up 2ft & FISH ON. I pulled up a 30+ in. RED snapper, great to eat. I check my list & to my surprise I CAN'T Keep it, so I used my bladder tool (it really worked)& I released the fish, he swam away.
did this 4 times with the same results each time.
One head boat & one other boat out there.
No keepers but the weather was finally good so I could get off shore in my 26 Century CC yellow hull named Maui.
37 degrees here. I need to be back in pensacola?????????
I'll be back

Sounds like you have sand in your shoes Maui. It bites that we can't keep red snapper. No one is happy about it. Can't keep them off the line.

They are endangered, you know. Just ask FWC and Marine Fisheries. They'll tell you.

If red snappers are in short supply, my chart was loaded with them, I'm thinking of fishing for them in season. How lucky you are to have that great fishing in your back yard.

They are not in short supply as you can testify to. It is brains that are in short supply, as in politicians brains. Glad you had a blast and look forward to seeing you here again.

We've been recording our catches in a survey and sending them off to FWC in Tally... last Saturday we got 5 trigs, 2 mingo, 3 undersized groupers, and 69 red snapper... 19 of the red snaps were over 18". Hopefully these surveys they're using will get the point across.
