Default Giant Snapper

My nephew and his friend (10 and 11 year old) were visiting this weekend and wanted to go fishing. It was rougher than expected so we only ran out about 8 miles. As usual I put a live bait out on a flat line as soon as we stop. In 5 minutes the drag started screaming, I assumed it was a big king. After the both fought it for awhile this giant red snapper appeared. It made their day, couldnít stop talking about it, me either. Took some pictures and released it. Over all they caught close to 30 snapper, and a few small AJís. Back to pick up the rest of the family for lunch by 10:30. Fun days for the boys.

Nice job! A fishing experience like that will keep them interested in fishing for a lifetime.

I’m shocked he survived snapper season.

Catch and release is what fishing will be when they grow up. Maybe they will snapper flavored tofu by then.
