After a storm like we just had Snapper and other fish were forced to swim with the current. Some small spots will be destroied and even larger spots may be gone or dameged. The Seas also runs very hard. As a result Many Hard spot fields full of Snapper and Grouper will be swept away far from home. Right now there are huge
schools of thousands of lbs. still swimming roaming and searching for a new home.
Some spots will have nothing. Others will be off the charts. I have kept
a pretty good log from Carla on and the patterns repeat. Just a little different due
to impact point. From right now you probally have to start at 35 plus miles and in
the next few weeks as water clears, current subsides, and the fish settle they
will move in closer. The Rigs will get their share of killer fish but oil workers will return
and com. boats reap that bounty first. For those that know and those that go , here comes some hot fishing. This was the Hundred Year Storm.
P.S.include an eagle eye in your crew and everybody watch close - B Careful!
Thanks for the info Rik, I remember after Rita we were catching 19-22 inch cookie cutter snapper in 22 feet of water out of Sabine Pass. They were mixed in with redfish of all sizes and would follow each other to the boat. The're must have been thousands of them down there.
