The best snapper fishing in a few years
18 May 2017
0 0

The bookings are slowing as the days get shorter, which is a pity, because the fishing is still going very well. We’ve had the best snapper fishing in a few years, with a lot of good sized fish caught in most areas. Disappointing for the exspurts who’re busy saying what crisis the species is in. Strange how it’s only snapper that are mentioned. Still, they are almost the only fish in the ocean.

Strange too, that all the groups use the same data; the commercial fishermen are the only ones who file catch  returns, so pro or anti, it all comes from the same source. Just depends on your point of view.

Fishing, like everything else, is cyclic and the ocean currents have the biggest effect, but how often are they mentioned as a factor from season to season?
