Anyone else catching mangrove snapper in our bay systems. Never thought there would be so many of these snapper so close to port. Fishing this weekend out of Port O'Connor, actually within site of POC, we caught well over 30 of these pesky little critters from 6"-12". They sure do fight for a small fish. We ended up taking enough home for supper, man they sure are tasty. Not sure why TPWD does not have any type of regulation on these species of snapper.
there everywhere in the galveston channel, i mean where you would think a snap would be, pilings rocks etc, ive caught them as much as 2+ lbs, and release, i guess they move offshore when they mature? does anyone know?
