We are seeing most of the action offshore and are more focused their due to the short red snapper season. We are fishing around 120-140ft at the shallowest end of things for these red snapper and the cut dead bait is working best like the bonita strips. However, we are having the most success and largest average size red snapper trips fishing closer to around 160-250ft of water. Look for those bigger shows coming up around the bait shows, ledges, rocks, peaks and offshore structure for the red snapper feeding active from the bottom as high up as nearly half way to the surface in some cases.
Red snapper season is upon us and that is our main target for the next 59 days while the season is only open for 62 days for the fed permitted for hire fleet.
