Best Snapper trip in the last few years... 1 mile offshore!

Went out with a buddy yesterday to dive some rigs off the Alabama coast and the water got so clear once we hit the Gulf that we decided to stop on some rigs just a mile offshore to get some warm up dives in. First dive and we doubled up on some 20+lb red snapper. An hour later we had a 4 man limit on the boat! (benefits of bringing your girlfriends with you and buying them licenses ) Had great vis on top and murky at the bottom, overall an awesome trip - calm seas, good vis, tons of fish. My buddy got bumped in the fins by a shark right as we brought our last fish on the boat so we hopped out and let him have the rest .

Also, it was my first trip with my custom built gun I've been working on the last few months. Couldn't have asked for more!
