Jacksonville Red Snapper Report - August 8, 2009

The fishing continues to be good but this weekend was as easy as the last. Some cold water has moved onto the bottom offshore of Jacksonville from 8-50 miles offshore. The fish are there but the cold water makes them slow and less aggressive. You'll want to anchor up and fish for a few minutes to get anything decent biting until the water warms back up.

We caught our limit of snapper this weekend inshore of Elton Bottom in about 115' of water. Live bait was again the bait of choice. We also caught a nice mangrove snapper and our limit of good size vermillion snapper.

Mitch's nice red snapper from 8/8/09.
