Still no snapper


 Given it was the last day of the season I headed out at 0330 to target snapper just inside FFB.  First bite turned out to be a huge starfish, it fought well for a dead weight.  Next run had all the earmarks of  a good fish  but dropped it before getting to see what it was, nice surging head bangs made me believe it was what I was targeting so I had high hopes of getting a couple.  Was not to be, three eagle rays and a black rzy gave a good a count of themselves then the gummies turned up again including a pb male fish. Bagged out by 7 am so headed in just as others we launching.  Oh well will have to wait u till December to target pinkies again ......hopefully !

Gummy over snapper any day. Easier to fillet and less waste as well. Done well again at fresh flake
