Federal red snapper opened in Gulf waters 1 June. We planned for two days, the weather lier forecast good seas for 3 & 4 June so we planned to go both days, and we did. Weather was pretty good Friday, seas 2 feet or less but the wind was from the East. You guessed it, "wind from the East fishing is the least". We tried all kinds of bait and many spots, but only caught 1 big red snapper, a big mangrove snapper, and lots of AJs and triggerfish. AJ and trigger closed.....of course!
Saturday forecast lier said winds South 10, he was not even close.....winds were Southeast 15-20 seas 4-5 but the bite was on and we had our limit of 14 big red snapper by 0930. Good weather Friday but no bite, bad weather Saturday and the bite was on. One of these days maybe we could have good weather and a good bite!
