Red Snapper Fishing out of Port Canaveral

Sunrise at Port Canaveral
     Last Friday, I hit the water with some friends for the opening day of Atlantic Red Snapper season. During the 2 1/2 weekend season in July this year the government was kind enough to let us keep ONE "endangered / over-fished" Atlantic Red Snapper per person, no size limit, for purpose of gathering data from the carcasses back at the dock. After loading the boat up with gear, ice, frozen squid & sardines, and beer, we launched from Sunrise Marina at Port Canaveral as the sun was coming up. After a quick stop to catch some live bait, we headed out for our target fish, Red Snapper. We fished, caught fish, laughed, drank some beer, and had a great time! I brought the GoPro along to document our trip. Check out the HD video on YouTube- 

... There was no shortage of Red Snapper.  ;)

We caught our limit...

Back at Sunrise Marina feeling sore, tired, and hungry, we cleaned our catch, and headed home.

Saturday night, I made lemon pepper baked red snapper with roasted green beans & red potatoes for the Wife & I for dinner. 

If you have any good Red Snapper recipes, please send them my way. I have another big fillet in the freezer, as well as some scraps that I plan to use to make fish soup out of.

SCUBA Diving the Blue Heron Bridge (west site)

Earlier this week, I dove the Blue Heron Bridge west site. The Blue Heron Bridge was named #1 on SportDiver Magazine's Planet’s 50 greatest dives! For more information on SCUBA diving the Blue Heron Bridge, refer to my old post from two years ago: SCUBA Diving the Blue Heron Bridge.

During our dive we saw all the usual snapper, grouper, flounder, lobster, eels, crabs & tropical fish as well as some very rare creatures like batfish, banded coral shrimp, arrow crabs & stone fish. The Blue Heron Bridge is an underwater macro photographers dream. We took a GoPro Hero 3 camera for video, and a Sony Cybershot 14 megapixel camera with housing for still shots... And now for the video. Enjoy!
