Seas were just as NOAA said they would be...smooth. Ioaded the boat with a friend and his 75 year old dad, 2 of my kids and another diver and we headed SW. I wanted to dive two new private spots. Lol. Travelled 14 miles SW and someone was on our numbers. No problem...another 4 miles...not a boat around...except on my second spot. Aaargh. Moved North to try an unknown spot and bingo. Snappers all over the place and we caught them one after another. Our main goal was to get the 75 year old his first Snapper. Done. I had to see what was under there so we suited up and went down to see all the fish. The spot was mainly loaded with trigger, snapper and AJ. Killed a scamp and a nice AJ and back to the boat. We continued to another spot and caught fish just before then last do. Killed a black snapper and called it a day.

Here's an AJ. The other red snapper pictures are on a buddy's phone. They were all released for June 1.
