Fall means the fishing for snapper bluefish takes off. They're often easy to find around docks and harbors, they’re tasty, and they’re great fish for younger anglers to catch.

This year the limit has dropped to three per angler per day.

Kevin Blinkoff of On The Water magazine joins us to talk about fishing for snapper blues, and he rounds up the local fishing action.  

Give a listen.
