What’s The Catch?
Vermillion Snapper are the catch of the day. A new season for Scamp Grouper and Red Grouper opens on April 1st. You can find more information about which fish are in season and specific regulations for our local fish at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission website. Now let’s talk fish!
The Vermillion Snapper or Mingo are a smaller saltwater fish that usually weigh less than a pound but can range up to 5 pounds. World records for Vermillion Snapper reach up to 7 pounds and 3 ounces. These fish make great panfish which means they are suitable for frying whole in a pan. Vermillion Snapper can be found in more shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Scamp Grouper and Red Grouper
The Scamp Grouper is very popular among Sportsmen. These fish have a sweet taste and are a delicious white meat. The Red Grouper can reach a maximum of 40 pounds. Florida sets the record for this species of fish at a whopping 42 pounds and 4 ounces. This particular grouper is known to be one of the toughest fighters among the grouper species. So needless to say, this is a prize catch among fisherman. Most grouper habitats are anywhere from inshore to depths of up to 300 feet in some areas.
