From Captain Payton
It’s been another great week out there on the water! The red snapper bite has been hot, and lot of folks have come home with their limit this week!
TONS of recreational boaters out there and not a whole lot of live bait, so have a back up plan or plan to spend a lot of time sabikiing for minnows by the pass!
The grouper have been smoking live pinfish on the bottom. And some pretty nice snapper too. Try it out!
The bite is better the further you are from the fishing pressure (as always) so if you want nicer fish be ready for fork up the cash for fuel! (Or just charter us 🤙🏼)
Vermillion have been less pressured and they seem to be all over our main mingo spots right now. If you want to filet a whole lot of fish when you’re done fishing, try throwing down a chicken rig for them with cut bait!
We’re back at it again next week folks, lots more snapper to be caught!!
Tight lines y’all!
