From Snapper to Wahoo

First a followup of the loss of a legend.



Out of Orlando:

The pictures tell the story. Without a doubt the best big fish fisherman I have ever seen on the Florida Fisherman. His ability and desire to catch all the species that are available on the Florida was what set him apart.
He never made a fuss or got overly excited. He just quietly went about his business. Ed was one of the old school of fisherman. In today's world of the internet and YouTube the learning curve has gotten a lot easier on boats like the Florida. All the online time in the world can never teach you what you learn from getting to know and fish with a guy like Ed.
I've had the pleasure of fishing with Ed many times. He will be missed but never forgotten. Joe

There is not a fish in Heaven that will now be safe.

And now, back to earth.

The 2021 American Red Snapper season was one of the best.



From every indication 2022 will be just as good, or better:



There are 125 known members of the snapper family. We in Florida are fortunate to have many.

Mangrove Snapper can be caught from inshore docks to Deep Sea.

Last Tuesday's catch:







The Yellowtail Snapper:

Plentiful, fun to catch, and that's just the beginning.

The Yellowtail snapper is extremely prized for its gentle, flaky meat and is considered by many to be among the finest eating fish of the entire snapper family:

Yellowtail Snapper are expensive to buy and, when caught, will put big smiles on anyone's face.

Last Tuesday's Middle Grounds trip saw many smiles:



Captain Garett Hubbard is one proud Captain:



Catching Florida snapper is just the beginning:



The latest off-on Amberjack season started off with a BANG:



The 'BANG' continue:



Both Greater Amberjack and Almaco will put BIG smiles on anyone's face:



Nowhere near as fast as a Jack, but even more of a 'Donkey!'







A real 'trigger' of a fish:



Now, let's talk speed.



The Blackfin Tuna is built for speed. They have the typical hydrodynamic streamlined tuna body that resemble a football. They can reach speeds of 46 mph.

A prized fish that is even faster than the Blackfin Tuna...

The faster-than-fast Wahoo.

Watch, 'The Great Wahoo Fight' and Captain Garett talking about the catch:
