My wife and I are vacationing on Dauphin Island, Al. I took the opportunity to go deep sea fishing for the first time. I had a blast! The crew said the bit was slow, didn’t seem like it to me. I caught a lot of red snapper which had to be released, managed to catch a nice trigger fish. Lost one that was long as my leg with the toes straightened out, or so I’ll claim. Will definitely do this again.

Yep, with Captain Mikes out of Dauphin Island.
Good to know. We will be spending some time at Gulf Shores later next year. Love offshore fishing.
Fished Laguna Madre by South Padre Island several times and for snapper at the new reef North and East of South Padre with great results.
The cold snap in South Tx a couple years ago killed millions of fish in the shallow waters of Laguna Madre.
Tx has highly modified what can be kept and what needs to be released in that area now and will modify as the population comes back.
