You will note that something is missing from Tim's. A shark said that fish are food, not friends.

A day fishing on the boat...even with the loss of the back half of the fish...still a good day by the looks of it! :chili:

The snapper season starts Friday. Can they be caught inshore? Methods?
Offshore. I've heard of them being caught at 10-15 mile oil rigs, but typically the blue water and deep seas are more like 30 miles and further out into the Gulf. In Texas waters the limit I think is 2 fish, 15" minimum. Not sure about federal waters, maybe 3 fish. But the total possession limit is 3 ... You can't catch 2 in state waters then go out into federal waters and catch 3 more. But anyway, you either need a big boat with all the trimmings, or else go out on what's referred to as a head boat.
30 miles off shore to catch red snapper? That's pretty far out.
30 miles was fairly close, for where we were going out from. Most times we went 50-60 mi out. With the recreational limits reduced so much, and the price of diesel fuel so high, we stopped going. The last big trip I made, our group weighed in 850 lbs of fish, which included our limit of red snapper. Good times.

This was from a couple of weeks ago, so he had to go back. Get him, Fainn.
