We keep it simple. Carolina rig with 50lb mono. Whole sardines or whatever we catch out of the canal for bait (live is always gona be better for bigger fish) As light of an egg weight as we can get away with.
I agree with Charlie on the fancy stuff.

If you want to target the bigger snapper get away from the main school until you only see 3 or 4 on your depth finder these are usually the bigger ones 20# to 28#s. Ithink someone said to get off of the structure and they are correct. the main school is usually smaller and stay together for protection.

Hopefully will get to show you a spot this year that the grouper will only hit tipped vertical jigs, and the jig has to be the right color, and the cut bait has to be exact bait they want. It is the damnest thing, five guys fishing side by side and once the one guy gets the combo right it is non stop action for drifts that are a mile long. Jigs alone catch couple, bait alone catch a couple. Jig+bait is nonstop.

That sounds awesome. I was going to try and get out today but got stuck in a blizzard in Kazakhstan and just got home. Next weekend looks like a strong maybe.

We bumped out to Supermarket today. Bad trash line 30ish out, trees, docks, entire channel markers, etc... The Mississippi river flood going to screw up Sabine fishing for a few days.

Good news, can walk on water if you step on snapper. Also weed lines starting to show up, was worried flood waters were going to keep it pushed out.
