Default Snapper June 29 and 30

We took two different groups out on the Southern Bell on Friday and Saturday, the 29th and 30th. The weather on the morning of the 29th was calling for 2 feet but was more between 3 and 4 with winds over 20 mph. We were fishing, initially, at about 20 miles offshore on tanker reefs. There were 4 boats around when we started around 7:15am but the opposing wind, waves and current weeded out the other 3...we didn't see anyone catching fish except one boat letting a young boy catch the fish and I'm not sure he didn't hit his limit in that hour...nice work kid. We drifted between two wrecks repeatedly and picked up our two biggest snapper of the day there (pictured). We moved out to about 30 miles and fished another tanker reef, followed by one other "semi-private" hole, whatever that about 3pm we had a limit of snapper for 6 fishermen and we picked up 3 gray snapper and two king mackerel, as well.

On Saturday the 30th we fished with 4 boys, one adult and I captained that boat but never fished. It was much better on the wave height, but still tough currents, full moon and some wind. We had a longer day getting to the limit, about 4:30 in the afternoon, but we were probably heavier on fish average than the day before. We spent most of Saturday beyond 25 miles on super reefs, tank reefs and "semi-private" spots. The boys had a great time, and learned that snapper can be caught on the bottom, or on the top. Adjust things to accommodate the conditions or finicky fish. MBGFC Jr Angler this weekend - maybe we'll see you there. Tight lines! #SouthernBell

I agree on the 29th...NOAA calling for 2 ft seas, we headed out and the seas were at least 3-4ft once you got around the 20 mile mark.. We tried one drop and decided it was too much and shouldn't be there in my 24ft boat.... Lessons learned after burning $100 in gas, supplies, etc to only fish for 5 minutes. ;(
