"Overfished" Red Snapper

This is a short video to illustrate just how many red snapper are actually in the Gulf of Mexico now off the Florida Panhandle. We broke our twenty foot bream buster down to sixteen feet in length. The first fish was before the camera started rolling and it snapped off the bottom four feet of the pole. This video is of the second fish. We were hoping to be able to video the numbers of fish swimming around the boat but the glare was terrible early in the morning.

We caught a limit very quickly on a widely known artificial reef in about fifty feet of water. The pole was busted to pieces before the party was over.
