    I don't mind hooking into a hog of a ARS anytime I go out, they are fun to catch. Even with the de hookers and air venting needles, I still see coda or shark waiting for me to let that puppy go so he can get a meal.

    Hope to go snapper fishing during the july openings. I just got back from a somewhat disappointing trip to the keys. I did catch the biggest yellowtail snapper of my fishing life. She was 27", didnt have a scale to wiegh her. Caught her on the Marathon Lady party boat after my buddies boat when down for the week right after launching it! IMG_0378.JPG

    Hey fishin folks... I can share our logic. I have 3 different (unrelated) sets of friends i rotate and do the snapper days last couple years now. I like to go every day its open weather pending but I understand not everyone can accomplish this. We have a simple ideology. We follow the intel / fish reports (kings, dolphin, cobia (thermocline) etc.) Whats been biting? Whats been hot up to a few days before snapper season? Then we go... we target those fish. We catch so many red snapper on accident now, that we end up getting our 4 or 3 fish that we need. This sounds like a simple thing, but psychologically the entire demeanor of the trip changes. We are going on a fishing trip Number 1. Number 2, we just happen to be allowed to keep ARS on these days. Super. My two cents..... but makes for fun days and less stress. except for the boat ramp.

    Never fished this season, how far out of Ponce do you have to run to find them?

    This is definately a success story in fish population managment. However like most good things we dont know when to move on. We can hardly botom fish for the pesty red snapper.

    I agree both shores. I’d rather just fish how I’d normally fish and target the same spices as normal and keep them as a by catch. I mean I know they are elusive and endangered after all. Lmao.

    yeah but it is still always nice to have a go to fish to just have a good time enjoying line tension for those who do not mind catch and release as a sport.

    Looking forward to it. Let’s hope the seas are calm and we can really target that population. Would be nice to make a dent in them and catch other fish during the non season.
