Mangrove snapper have been consistent near shore lately out deeper like the lane snapper, however, like lane snapper we are seeing them here and there shallower but if you can get out there
Hogfish were tougher this week for us near shore too with bumpy conditions and stirred up waters it made it tough to target those guys. However, we did catch a few around the 40-60ft range. However even that area was stirred up from the rough conditions which made it tricky.
Red grouper action is going extremely well for us in the deeper offshore waters. We are seeing some really fat red grouper while fishing 150-200ft of water.
The red grouper bite was super-hot for us this past week as we transitioned from gag grouper fishing to the red grouper. This past week on our 12 hour extreme trip this past Wednesday we caught a boat limit of keeper red grouper that means everyone on board completely limited out on keeper red grouper.
