Red Snapper season part two in Grayton

Capt. Mark Thompson
October 7, 2013
Grayton Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Tropical Storm Karen, the storm that wasn't (more of a media storm) appears to have done nothing more than take away four of the twenty one days allotted for a fall Red Snapper season.

I was down on the beach earlier this morning watching several schools of bait being chased by Kings and am Looking forward to resuming trips in the morning.

Prior to this latest shutdown the Red Snapper bite was good as it usually is as well as the Grouper bite. The sharks which we had such a problem with this summer and devouring lots of what we were catching had backed off for a few weeks and now appear to be back to making it trickier to get a grouper to the boat than getting it off and away from the bottom.

Been catching several summer Cobias with most being short. The best strategy i've found to getting the bigger ones is to shark fish and be baited and ready to pick off any cobia that may be accompanying the shark when you pull it alongside.

There's been a run of Almaco Jacks come through and if you've never had it is a close taste to grouper. You'd never know it without tasting it as they look almost indistinguishable on the outside from their cousins the Greater and Lesser Amberjack.

Target Species:

Red Snapper, Grouper, king Mackerel, Triggerfish, Amberjack
