On a recent fishing trip, we were going through our Red Snapper catch and noticed one was slightly darker than the rest. When we looked closely, we found the fish had a few distinguishing marks. I was told it was a Blackfin Snapper, in the same genus as the Red Snapper. Even more exciting, it has a higher catch limit and no season! I found a really good article on these fish so I won’t rewrite what someone else has written well, so check it out at http://www.louisianasportsman.com/details.php?id=8055.
Way cool! Keep your eyes peeled and double check your catch before you throw that Red Snapper back!
