Mangrove Snapper And Much More*

What an honor and a great privilege it has been to bring our Florida into the homes of fellow sportsmen/women all over this big, wide, wonderful country of ours for well over 1/2 a century. What a ride it has been.The ride continues:The Sunshine State has so much to offer. We started the new decade by taking a close look at Hogs that swim, and hogs that don't:We took an in-depth look at one of Florida's most sought after fish, the elusive Mangrove Snapper:In my journeys I have met many interesting people; non more interesting than Captain Dylan Hubbard. When I first met Dylan he was a hard working mate. Now he is a husband, father, and Captain:Captain Dylan, fourth generation owner/operator of Hubbard's Marina, is very involved with fishing. He attends virtually all fishery management meetings. His objective is an open-free fishery for one and all. But can he actually catch fish?Absolutely! *Case in point, the Mangrove Snapper.January 14, 2020:Looks like the Mangrove 'bite' is strong and keeps getting stronger:Jason, make that Captain Jason, is all smiles:Mangrove Snapper can even be caught in brackish water as well as off many bridges. However, the deep-water offshore Mangroves tend to be a 'little' larger:With no closed season, and a two day possession limit of 20, the Mangrove Snapper can put a big smile on anyone's face:Looks like they are getting even bigger:Not to be left out is the great eating Vermilion Snapper.*First mate Will:Night fishing on the Florida Middle Grounds.*Fantastic!Wednesday morning:One major problem... No matter how hard we try, we simply cannot get away from the 'endangered' American Red Snapper:Vermilion and Yellowtail Snapper:2019 was a fantastic year for catching Gag Grouper.*2020 is looking every bit as good.And they are running huge:One of the best parts of fishing is getting to know interesting people. All have a story to tell.*Mr. Leo Smith, a proud Marine and good friend, has many:The plentiful, fun to catch, good to eat, Almaco Jack has no closed season, no size limits, and no possession limit.*Fist mate Will, and Captain Garett Hubbard:An now... The best of the best, the Scamp Grouper.*Will, that's looking good, really good:Talk about 'really good', it's Tammy time:

You're right about the almacos being good to eat Bob. I had never kept one until recently, always figured they were just another jack. Boy was I wrong.

Same here. Until I tried them I thought they would be just like AJ's. WRONG!

Hey Bob,
we were looking at the 39 hour trips on hubbardsmarina.com. Looks like we could bring our own cooler/food, could we bring our own beer?

"we could bring our own cooler/food, could we bring our own beer?"

You can indeed bring your own cooler/food, but NO alcohol of any kind. Beer is sold on the boat.

That's understandable, I can see where things could get out of control if you allowed people to bring there own alcohol. Unless there's an on board jail.

These boats are for serious fishing, no place for drunks!
