Henry is with Captain William Pugh again, fishing offshore from Panama Beach in North West Florida, and hoping to catch some Red Snapper, the signature fish of the Gulf of Mexico. No matter what their size, Red Snapper are tough fighters, stunning looking fish and renowned eating fish. In Fish Eye, we learn all about the Red Snapper including their lifecycle, migration patterns and habitats. Next its Henry's turn to get into the action as he hooks a powerful fish that takes a strong first run and applies some big headshakes, but when he pulls its up, only half of the fish is left as its been attacked by something bigger during the fight. Its not long before he hooks another and this time lands it in tact, but the next fish is much bigger and Henry fails to get it clear of the reef and eventually loses the battle showing just how hard these fish fight. In the tip section, Henry talks us through all the kit he takes with him when fishing for deep water reef species like Snapper, Amberjack, and Kingfish. We also look at some of the biggest Red Snapper ever caught courtesy of the IGFA.
