You are wondering how I am catching all these Snapper when no one else is???
Well here is my secret.
This is the chum you want to use..Pride of Virginia.
If you notice when you open the box this chum has a color and odor of no other chum.
I usually use about two boxes of chum per evening to catch my Snapper. We have been catching Gag, Black and Red Groupers but they are a couple of inches short so we have to release them.
Most of these Snapper were caught late in the afternoon. Bruce, Jim and I went out at the Boca inlet and fished north of Palm Beach. We caught some Kingfish in the afternoon too. You can be sure you will get at least one Kingfish.
When it got dark we anchored up and caught another five Snapper that were keepers.

We had a good day of fishing today...the fish started biting after 9:00 a.m. and tapered off at about 1:00 p.m.
Jim, Benjamin and I had a great time, we just about ran out of bait so we were lucky to catch all that we did. At least we have plenty of fish for the next few weeks.
We are still trying to catch the limit of 10 per person. At least we are having fun trying!

Jim, Bruce and I went out early this morning and as you can see it was a beautiful sunrise here in Boca Raton, Florida.
The Snapper were slow to bite today but we did get a few. I had to release a few Snapper and Grouper since they were undersized. Not much here but at least it will be a tasty meal.
Finger Mullet are traveling down the beach and should be in Boca Raton by the end of this week and all the preditors that eat them will be following. They follow along with them to feed on them as they travel south.

Well we went out on Sunday and tried to catch a two person limit of Snapper but we were seven short. Not bad for fishing in the daytime for five hours.
Then we tried to duplicate that the next day but the weather changed. We didn't do too bad. We got eight Snapper and four Kingfish and released two. We have been eating well the past few days.

Just when I thought I had a good day of fishing it got better. During the week is the best time to fish. Everybody is working and I am having fun!!
We will have a feast tonight. Jim and I went out again today and kept reeling them in. We caught all these before noon.
This is a prime example of being able to catch Snapper with the wind blowing from the west. The old wives tale is "when the wind blows out of the west stay home and rest". I say "when the wind blows out of the west the fishing is the best".
