Default What's the largest snapper you've ever caught????

Well this used to be the time we'd start getting ready for snapper season, but since the feds have ruined our lives figure i'd at least get some pics of everyone's sows. Mine's 33.7 Caught on a wellhead in 80 ft, on a 7oz pink willamson abyss.

Since I have been in business I have caught only about 5 over 30. So many over 20 I can't count. The largest I have caught was 31.7 on an ole guys center console which I was taking him fishing. I caught that one on a live eel, 40 lb test on a 1/2 ounce knocker rig. No leader. lead strait to the hook. I hooked him about 10 feet down in 100 feet of water. The only reason I was able to catch it was that the current was so strong that day I was able to get off the spot fast by just shutting off the boat. I was holding up in reverse on one of my little runover spots I found. That fish took me down fast and hard all the way to the bottom both thumbs on the spool could not stop it. I guess the spot was so small it couldnt get back to break me off.

I have a good friend that said he caught his biggest red snapper ever last year, out of season of course, under Pensacola 3 mile bridge. He said it was every bit of 30-34 inches. Of course he didn't have a camera, so I tell him we have to go catch it again before I'll believe him. I myself haven't caught any hogs to speak of.
