Snapper (Lane)

As we headed offshore it was a beautiful morning with not wind.
We went to our first stop to fish for big lane snapper. We caught about 6 lane snapper all 12 inches and bigger and one 21 inch red grouper.
We decided to move and hit a few more spots and caught some very nice red grouper.
Our biggest grouper for the day was a 31 inch red grouper which broke Billy’s rod (he brought his own) and he was able to reel in broken rod and all.
Our next biggest grouper was 27inches and the rest were all better than 23.
We did catch a couple of sharks and safely released them back into the gulf.
Three eels were also caught.
As the pictures show it was a flat calm day and the Gulf of Mexico was like a lake.
