Red snapper have been harvested from the Gulf of Mexico since as early as the 1840's. They are an extremely popular gamefish and are highly sought after for their table fair. Red snapper can grow up to 40 inches long, can weigh up to 50 pounds and live up to 50 years.
They reach sexual maturity when they are around 2 years old and spawn from May to October near coral reefs or rock ledges. The larger females contribute the majority of eggs to the population . One 24 inch female red snapper, which is 8 years old, produces as many eggs as 212 17 inch, 5 year old, females.
We get alot of questions about exactly which rod reel line and hook we are using for different applications.

The Mercury Active Trim is a GPS, speed based, automatic engine trim system. This responds to the weather around you responding to the weather conditions around you and fuel economy. Now the engine will set the trim for you so you no longer have to. I know many guys who don’t even use their trim because they don’t want to deal with it. The trim is super important for leveling the boat off and saving on fuel - that is why this invention is so awesome.
The newest edition to the Scales gear family is the Fisherman Board Shorts, made my fisherman for fisherman. One of my favorite features is the padded waste band - when we are fishing all day long with spinning tackle, fighting the fish is just the beginning. Then you have to fight the pain of when it hits you in the hip. Scales built protection right in for that exact situation. There is also a built in plier pocket with polyester so the pliers don’t get jammed up - aside from that they are extremely comfortable. Check them out!

With parties during the holidays, the best appetizer you can do is a smoked fish dip. We love this Smoked Kingfish dip. We will cut it up into large chunks about the size of your hand so that they cook evenly and you smoke them skin down. Personally I like to marinate mine with lots of spice, pepper and teriyaki and brown sugar.
