Default Last day of endangered red snapper

Well,

We had intentions to catch a limit of the endangered red looking fish. Instead big mingo kept taking half of our live bait. We switched to mi go rigs and got out five person limit with some nice ones going 3 pounds. The other 15 fish ended up with our buddy taking his share home.

I’ll take those over a boat load of snapper any day.
Nice job.

We did the same thing yesterday. Got on a spot trying for snapper and the mingo bite was on fire so we switched up and got a cooler full.

Nice job on some fine eating!

I know it sounds weird but I'm kinda glad it's over. There was a certain amount of pressure to "catch em while you can", especially last week. Now we can target the other species in a slightly more relaxed fashion.

Yeah mingo definitely taste better just less meat. I’m with you on being glad snapper season is over. My buddy James and I were just talking about that. Too much pressure on the bait.

What kind of structure and depth did you find these beautiful fish?
