I had read many good reports about Dolphin Docks over the years but had never been able to get time to run downs there. I recently retired and since I have free time now I called them and they were putting together a 12 hour state water red snapper trip. I signed up and headed south. The fishing was great and we ended up with some really nice snappers. I think there were about 20 fishermen and we limited out the boat. We also caught quite a few smaller ones that we threw back. There were also three big bull reds caught (Unfortunately not by me!) along with I don’t know how many hard heads. I did also catch a bonnet head shark. Everyone on the boat seemed pretty happy about the success and everyone I talked to thought the captain and deck hands were top notch. I was going to sign up for another trip or two when we got back in but my wife called with a weather report and said if I wanted to get home I better head that way. I’ll definitely head back down when things warm up again. [Linked Image]

Nice snapper! That second one looks like it had a great throat/collar on it, that's my favorite part of the fish.

Also I can't really tell, in your last pic, bottom left...is that a speck?

Thanks fellas. Not sure if it was a speck or not, it had been on the ice several hours by that time but I couldn’t see any spots on it. The little one beside it was a strawberry grouper and on the far right are couple of nice size trigger fish. I haven’t cooked up any yet as I’m still trying to get my nerve up to go outside and set the cooker up!
