Drop Down Sport Fish Charters Fishing Report for St. Augustine Florida - 07/30/2017

 Bait: Cut sardine chunks

Water temp: 73

Water depth: 100ft

What's biting: cobia, red snapper , vermillions 

 For those of you who didn’t know red snapper finally opened up this month for two weekends. Drop Down Sport Fish Charters here in St. Augustine Florida booked out all the snapper days but unfortunately due to the weather we only got to fish two days. Deepsea fishing for red snapper offshore on wreckes was very productive and we had our limts in just a few minutes. Most fish 5-8 pounds but a couple bigger fish near 20lbs. There are several ways to catch red snapper, personally I just like a 4 to 5 foot leader with a number eight or nine circle hook and a 8 ounce lead usually gets the job done. Drop down to the bottom and reel up about 10 cranks just off the bottom and the snappers should be there. Maybe noaa Maine fisheries well realize the seas were way too big and way too rough for anyone to go catch red snapper the weekends they choose out of it being closed for many years!!! Not really fair. Maybe they will reconsider another weekend for anglers to go catch this great tasting fish. Let’s go fishing on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters deepsea offshore.
