Rough weather cancels fisherman red snapper trips
GULF COAST -- This is the first weekend, fishermen and charter boat captains could take advantage of the supplemental two-week red snapper season. The season runs through October 14th. But now, rough weather and big surf in the Gulf of Mexico has cancelled a lot of those fishing trips. Captains say once waves get over four or five feet it's no longer safe to take people out. So, now many are just being forced to wait and watch the weather.
