Fish Flash: Temps and fishing are red hot

Published: Friday, June 14, 2013 at 01:28 PM.

Capt. Brad Biggers and his group on the Mother Lode filled the racks with some big red snapper and a couple of king mackerel.

"Fishing is good," Biggers said.

Capt. Justin Destin on the Full Draw was a little bit more descriptive of the day.

"We were turnin' and burnin'," Destin said. He and his group filled the racks with red and black snapper. And he was looking to head back out for an afternoon trip.

Kentucky and Tennessee anglers on the Strike Zone with Capt. Phil Hessinius limited out on red snapper. They also had a lane snapper on the racks. A lane snapper looks a lot like a red snapper, except it has yellow stripes.

Capt. Hessinius said fishing was good, but "the current was running today."

Tennessee anglers on the Shamrock II with Capt. Eddie Dykes reeled in a limit of red snapper and a pair of king mackerel, while the Tennessee group on the 100 Proof with Capt. Steve Brown got their share of red snapper and had one red grouper.
