Beaumont’s John Blackwell and Earl Frost caught this huge snapper and a lot more

Red snapper are structure-oriented reef fish, which is why you can find them around the many oil and gas production platforms up and down the Texas coast. One thing is certain: Nothing attracts and holds more snapper than the structure beneath an oil and gas rig. But truth be known, snapper aren’t always directly under a rig. In fact, on many offshore trips, we have found the best snapper to be upward of 100 yards from a rig.
