what's happening lately is wind. that & a 22' boat is typically not fun.
also, what's happening now, fishing-wise, will most likely be entirely different
from what's happening when you get there in 2 weeks.
you don't need rigs to catch snappers anymore, they're everywhere. TPWD has a few new wrecks,
Hilton has installed a lot of Pyramids on the bottom up & down the coast.
shrimpers were all over the place last week., Ck. A.I.S. to get a good idea where the majority are before you head down.
do your homework, develop some good #'s to check, & fish.
You can't know if you don't go.........
