It was this girl’s first time fishing for red snapper off of the east coast of Florida, with ‘Back To Blue Adventures’ and truth be told, I’m glad someone took a camera along, otherwise we might have missed this. I’ve been fishing all of my life and I’ve never seen fishing like this before !! They were going-out for red snapper and from what I saw in this video, they did very well.
About The Red Snapper:

SIZE: Common from a pound or so to about 6 or 8 pounds. Usual maximum is about 20 pounds, although the Red Snapper can rarely run as high as 30 or 40 pounds.post was originally published on this site
