This time of year is a great moment for snapper blues, and we’re having a good season for them. Snapper blues are just young bluefish, and they are feisty. They're also delicious to eat.

Keven Blinkoff, of On The Water magazine, joins us to talk about snapper blues, how to catch them and how to prepare them. Young fishers may really enjoy catching snappers, as the fish aren't picky and can be found in harbors and along piers.

Also, we round up the weekly fishing action across the region. Give it a listen.
