Shot these two Mangrove Snapper in 90 fsw off of Sugarloaf key. Can you guess which one weighs ten pounds?

Gee, let me think about that. I guess the one in your right hand. Am I right? Nice fish. Where you able to get to them without a boat? Sorry for ignorance, I have never been to the Keys.

What kind of gun is that with a built in muzzle that the shaft goes through? Is that an extra shaft on the bottom of the gun?
They were taken six miles offshore, unless you are a very strong swimmer you would need a boat. There are coral heads you could swim to near shore but the vis is often poor.
The gun is home made and I carry two spare shafts. It's a free shafting gun, no lines atached.
Good Job!

Thats a nice pair of snappers. How do you like that custom set up you made?

Nice snappers, Its not all about size though, as my therapist reminds me often......
