Mangrove snapper smokem trip
Capt. Ron Ph#225-445-1019 Capt. Ron email -
Hello fellow anglers. What a fun fishing trip with a group of good friends in from Arkansas for a visit and some good ole rod bending action. We met Mr. Rick and 5 of his good friends at the dock at 5 am and loaded with mangrove snapper bait we hit the gulf and were greeted by calm seas and a slight breeze and the guys were anxious to hit the first spot and after a good boat ride we hooked to the rig and it was on like donkey Kong with the first drop producing a nice 12 pound mangrove snapper. From the first drop it was a Chinese fire drill on the boat with double and triple hook ups going on but a lot of red snapper mixed in but they sure make a good tug on the line for the guys. The guys caught plenty of nice fat mangroves and some trigger fish mixed in and 1 cobia and had some big fish eat several 5 and 6 pound red snapper on the way up but we could never turn their head ot of the rig before they could cut us off. After the bite slowed a little we made a move to another rig and picked up a few more fish and decided to go back to the start and try to catch some big fish and we managed 1 nice amber jack and 2 trigger fish to round out a perfect day.
So with a fish box to the bursting point we headed the boat north and the guys fired up their party early and had a blast on the way back to the dock.My friends and I and Capt Ricky had a blast with each other and the guys cant wait until next red snapper season to make their next trip with me. The final fish count for the day was 39 mangrove snapper 2 trigger fish 1 cobia and 1 amber jack. A great time was had by all and after a round of high fives and hand shakes the guys headed of to tear down Bourbon street.

If you would like to make a trip Capt. Ron give us a call or drop us an email we would love to take you and your friends and family fishing but call early because the available days are going fast.If you would like to take a trip please give me a call or drop me an email and we can arrange the trip of your lifetime. And as our motto says, "RAIN OR SHINE, SLEET OR SNOW, IF YOU COME WE WILL GO!
Thanks Capt Ron
