Snapperfest 2014 Continues

Despite my best efforts, Independence Day weekend yielded no grouper. I did have a few hits, but couldn’t connect. The biggest obstacle was a ripping outgoing tide at sunrise. Maybe next weekend….

Meanwhile, the mangrove snapper bite is still on fire. Targeting them at The Merry Pier in St. Pete Beach, I caught and released them by the dozens, keeping only a few 12″ to 15″ fish. Bait is thick, but still really small. I soaked a pinfish in the Pass-A-Grille Channel in hopes of a cobia, but no dice.
