Default Nice Snapper Night + Groupers & Red

Made it out again with Brandon (Brandonshobie) Thursday (2/9) in the evening thanks to the continued nice weather window. Started off steady catching a few nice sized snapper.
About an hour in and I thought I had a smaller one but turned out to be a Redfish. As the evening wore on Brandon hooked into a couple of hosses over 30". I managed one right at 30" and then finished off the night with a nice surprise - 2 Groupers.
Bite slowed down about 9:30 so we headed in. Final tally between us 10 Snapper, 1 Redfish, 2 Grouper. Not bad for a quick outing.

Thanks - yes we were in yaks. Depth wise, I'm pretty sure it was over our heads.

I saw your post on FB this morning. Nice haul. Surprised you didnít catch a coelacanth or Atlantic sturgeon to go along with all those other endangered fish.

I'm told old, to busted up for that kind of thing. Do you ever hook fish that drag your butt around? Those are nice fish for a "row boat".

Probably not as much effort as you think Capt. You definitely get towed around a bit by the bigger ones. Especially the ones that make good horizontal runs.

Maybe a couple of surgeries back, say about 20yrs ago. Darn sure would have done it then. I like the affordability, but the down side is becoming Capt Ahab! You be careful, someone might not appriciate that happening to you! Keep posting pictures, they are safe for me to view!
