Default Gulf Red Snapper Season is open!

Took the 18 center console out and caught a couple of nice snapper in 100' of water about 6 miles out from Destin. Hers was 26" and mine was 24". Don't have a scale. Caught several smaller but we only wanted two nice keepers.

Seas were less than 2' all day. Ran out to my site at 18-20 kts, did about 4 drifts over the bit of reef below and had these in less than an hour. Burned only 5.6 gallons of gas for the entire 28 mile round trip with my Etec 90.

Fresh snapper filet about 1.5" - 2" inches thick (maybe a 3 lb filet?) covered with lemon pepper, dill, and just a smidgeon of chili pepper in an olive oil baste, baked on a bed of fresh spinach at 325 degrees for 9 minutes. MMMmmmm.

Nice. My son went out on Friday from Port St Joe and they limited out. We are good last night. Going out on Wednesday too from Grayton Beach.

Mmm, love Red Snapper (used to) too bad they are almost extinct on the east side. Oh wait, somebody found a few and we have 2 days to fish for them.
