Vermillion snappers fishing season opened up for us today in Fort Lauderdale. Today was our first chance to catch and keep these snappers for the first time in over 3 months. We’ve been throwing them back for months now and it hurt. Well, today since the season opened up, we went out to hit up a couple of our vermillion snappers bottom spots. They were snappin’. We caught a ton of them, every angler caught his limit and we threw a bunch others back. The red snappers that we caught were all big snappers. They weighed up to 6 pounds. We also caught some big almaco jacks, amberjacks and 1 big yellow-eye snapper. It was a nice opening to the red snapper season. Just a short note to let you know on top of all the great kingfish and mahi-mahi action on the reef, we now get add vermillion snapper to the menu. I’m going to go cook some up right now. Sea ya on the water.
