Mangrove Snapper Almost Breaks Alabama State Record

Kevin and his family headed out today for 10 hours. We fished South of Orange Beach some 30 miles. We caught amberjack, red snapper and one monster Black (mangrove) Snapper. Kevin knew it was a big one when it hit. We thought it was another Amberjack. When it broke the surface, we were all surprised to see such a big mangrove snapper. We knew it would be close to the Alabama State Record. We brought it in and we missed it by just one pound. It is still a trophy size black snapper. Kelly, Ryan and Dustin all had a great time today catching fish.
