Reef fishing at the snapper hole

Capt. Mark Rosen

Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

I took 3 anglers on a bottom fishing trip yesterday. We left a little late around 800 Am the seas were nice and flat. We had a little fog but not bad. I headed out to the snapper hole 12 miles NE of the inlet. There he wind was out of the south about 5 MPH and we had a slight current running north. The waster was 73 degrees and very clear. I saw some fish on a spot where the reef went from 80 feet to 72 feet. I was able to use my Minkota I-Pilot to electronically anchor the boat. We had fish right away. I deployed our chum delivery system down to about 60 feet. We were using a combination of cut squid and frozen shrimp on chicken rigs. One of the anglers was using cut barracuda on a circle hook with an 8 Oz egg sinker. I real nice mutton snapper took the barracuda bait as soon as it hit the bottom. We caught a nice selection of snapper including lane snapper, gray snapper, and yellow tail snapper. We caught a lot of grunts and used them for cut bait as well. We ended up keeping 6 real nice trigger fish to round off the day. We released at least 50 fish as well. By noon the seas started kicking up so the chater called ot a day and we headed back
