Re: Is this a chocolate snapper?

I know folks in the panhandle that call mangrove snapper black snapper, some call them grey. They are black in the cooler, grey underwater. I call them dimmer. I don’t know what the tourist black snapper is. I guess grey is "dimmer" than black. lol :-D Just pulling your chain David. I've ...

Re: Is this a chocolate snapper?

I can relate to the advanced age thing but picking the right day and conditions has nothing to do with our age... it's just smart! :-D I go outside the pass maybe four or five times a year and then only when the conditions are right and most of those trips are hunting cobia closer to shore. Good luc...

Re: Xpress Shallow Water Bay 22

I have what is probably a dumb question and maybe a concern for anyone buying a "metal" boat: The last aluminum boat I had was a Triton bass boat... The hull was glass but the deck, lockers, lids, etc were all aluminum. On hot days, the deck would get so hot it would blister your feet. No ...

Re: Is this a chocolate snapper?

The ole Pink Mouth Snapper (aka Grunt) has saved many a trip. "Pink Mouth Snapper" and Grits just doesn't sound right! :-D Like bbb said, It's hard to believe a head boat out of PC didn't put you on some Red Snapper. It's usually hard to avoid them. I think I have all the public numbers o...

Re: Is this a chocolate snapper?

A lot of party boat mates either don't know what kind of fish it is or just want to make the tourists believe they caught something special. They like to call Porgys - Silver snapper and Beeliners - Pink Snapper to name a few. I've never heard of a Chocolate snapper but I talked to to couple of guy...

Re: BOTTOM MACINE QUIT WORKING

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have caught a few fish but nothing spectacular lately. My bottom machine quit working on Saturday while we were offshore snapper fishing. I think it's just the transducer but I don't want to spend any money on this unit. I am considering a Lowrance Elite FS9 wit...

Re: St. Marks 6/5/21

He had to mean Florida pomps... unless he made a long run to the Keys and then the limit is 2. :-D
Great report! but you probably shouldn't say "snag" a redfish. :-D

Re: Trailer tire pressure?

My response was for trailer tires as that was what the OP was about, so no door jamb info. The max pressure on the side walls states 65psi cold, I figure the manufacture realizes what cold means and that the pressure will increase when it gets warm. You may have misread the OP. I asked about both t...

That's the max load psi. It will differ from what's on the door jamb label and the reason it's not clear how much pressure you should put in the tires.

Re: Trailer tire pressure?

I load my to Max cold air on trailer tires. I would also recommend going for Load C tires to Load D, when I did it made a much better ride and better for the tires. Load D tires 65lbs. So you put 65 psi in your trailer tires when they're cold? That sounds like a lot and then there's the pressure in...
