This is a lonely place :) ... here's some pics of a decent
snapper

I've been blessed by the fish gods out of Freeport, TX
again. The biggest one caught on my boat was 32 lb
in August 2008. This one is 3rd largest

This one was so big I can see him on my sonar as a
distinct mark. My friend Chris caught this one on the
bottom. I told him to watch for 'tap tap tap' of small fish
vs. a single light pull of larger snap. Well, he listened,
and on the second drop he pulls this one up after 15-20
min fight on a Shimano Trinidad 14/St Croix Saltwater Premier
6 MH; 80 lb leader, 65 lb PowerPro braid. Initially we
thought it was a king by the way the fish take off running
and dumping half of the TN-14. Towards the end of the
fight I can tell it was a snapper by the way the rod bend in
rapid successions then stop. This is Chris' first offshore
trip and he's spoiled
