Orlando Red Snapper
Orlando's Alternative for the Working Man
Monday May 29, 2017
Let's face it... Why do we work? It's because we need to make enough money to GO FISHING! Our forefathers went fishing and their fathers before them and Orlando's known for a great place to catch a fish while you're on a business trip or vacation. Why not come and tug on some red snapper and other great sports fish while you're taking some time away from work and visiting Florida?
"Fishing is much more than fish. It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers." - Herbert Hoover
Today's job demands are beckoning you to take a day off and return to the primal roots of our fishing ancestral rights. That's why we are going to help you make an excuse to go fishing this year so that you can go fishing with US, Lagooner Fishing Guides. Below are a few excuses that may be used to help you get off work and take a day off. It's a quick "Get out of Jail" card and while we make no promises, these proven excuses are proven to work for millions of employees over centuries.
- My grandmother died - While there are times when this excuse might actually be true, it tends to get used quite a bit when it's not. Still, few bosses with question a grieving employee.
- I need to stay home to care for my husband/wife/child. - You can't argue with having to stay home and care for someone else who's too sick to do it on their own.
- My alarm didn't go off. - If you somehow managed to sleep through the entire work day or a good portion of it because your alarm didn't go off (even if you forgot to set it) you can't be held responsible for that right?
- I have a headache - Headaches, whether migraines or smaller aches, these painful problems make it nearly impossible to work.
- I have a family emergency - This is a commonly used excuse perhaps because it discourages further inquiry. Family matters can be very private and your boss may feel awkward asking more.
- I have jury duty - If you don't go to jury duty instead of work you could be in big trouble. Of course, you might need to watch out if your boss asks for proof.
- I lost my voice - So long as you call in for work in a teeny, tiny whisper, no one will question that you've lost your voice. Just make sure you can't do your job without a voice, otherwise it's not much of an excuse.
- It's a religious holiday - You'll have to really commit to this excuse, but your boss can't fault you for needing to take days off to participate in your religious activities.
- I have to babysit - Whether they're your own kids of that of a sick relative, you can use this excuse to get out of one kind of work by having to do another.
- I'm taking a sick day - Really, do you need to elaborate any further? If your work guarantees sick days, you're allowed to take them when you please.
- I stayed up too late working and am too tired to come in - This excuse not only gets you out of work today, but makes you look like a hard worker to boot.
- It's my birthday! - Is this a valid reason not to come into work. Absolutely not. Is it a common excuse for not coming in? Totally. Should you probably veil it behind some other excuse? More than likely.

Red Snapper are a brilliant Color of pinkish red over their entire body, whitish below; long triangular snout; anal fin sharply pointed; no dark lateral spot.
Snapper are an important commercial fish that is superb on the dinning table. Snapper has a semi-mild white meat that can have a slight seafood taste to the palette. Most anglers catch snapper while bottom fishing with live or dead bait, but they can be caught with an assortment of artificials.
The federal government has closed red snapper fishing in 2010 and is possibly considering a ban on snapper fishing for several years as they consider it overfished. This particular government mandate is not indorsed by Lagooner Fishing Guides or it's staff because we believe that red snapper are not in peril and can be managed effectively with harvest quotas.
Red Snapper are found OFFSHORE on the continental shelf, more plentiful off the panhandle than in south or middle Florida. However since snapper regulations have tightened in the last few years, reds have become more abundant and larger than when they declined in the last few decades.
Juveniles occur over sandy or mud bottoms and are often taken in shrimp trawls; adults may live more than 20 years, and attain 35 pounds or more; sexual maturity attained at age 2; spawns June to October; feeds on crustaceans and fish.
20" Atlantic Ocean; 16" Gulf of Mexico minimum size, 2 per angler per day.
NOAA Fisheries Service has announced that effective January 4, 2010, all recreational and commercial harvest of red snapper in Atlantic federal waters is prohibited. This interim rule will be effective until June 2, 2010 and could be extended for another 186-day period.

May - 2017 Fishing Report
May - 2017 Fishing Forecast
May in Central Florida is the beginning of great things for people looking toward an ocean fishing trip looking for fast action. King Mackerel, Cobia and even a few tarpon start to make a showing as May develops into a more summer like pattern. Inshore the fishing can be productive for early morning and evening anglers as the sun warms the gin clear waters of the Mosquito Lagoon and the Banana Rivers. Both Redfish and Spotted Sea Trout will be a popular gamefish that even the youngest anglers will appreciate and enjoy. Bring plenty of sunscreen, some polarized sunglasses and broadbill hat as the Florida sunshine will penetrate the most protected boating endeavors. May is the beginning of the summer in Florida as far as the temperatures are concerned, but there's often an afternoon shower, so be prepared to fish early and get off the water before the afternoon storms roll in. So remember, inshore fishing and offshore fishing are an equal opportunity in May in Central Florida.
