At the opening of red snapper season at midnight last night, I went offshore to test out the bite. At 90 ft we found the best action on frozen cigar minnows, but grunt plugs worked good, too. We had to release 15 red snapper before catching one over 15 pounds. Our biggest was 25 pounds. Keeping one per person doesn’t sound all that appealing, but this fish sure put a smile on my face in the early AM!
