Florida angler stunned after ‘improbable’ snapper catch

·1 min read

Robert Bush Sr. told MyFWC Florida Fish and Wildlife that he was “stunned” after his recent catch of two gray mangrove snapper on the same hook.

The agency wrote on Facebook: “It was an improbable catch that left Robert Bush Sr. ‘stunned’ from his incredible luck. He let us know he used shrimp for bait and both fish were released.”

While improbable, such luck is not unprecedented.

MyFWC asked followers to share similar “fish tales” and received several responses and a few images in the comments section to serve as proof.

The Facebook post was titled, “Two-for-one Friday” but one follower corrected the term to read “fry day.”
