This particular packet is a lone SYN packet, meaning that it is the
first packet in the 3-way handshake. This packet should not contain any
payload (which holds true in your example).

Personally I record the traffic of interest in pcap format (snort,
tcpdump, ethereal etc), and load it into ethereal to find the
interesting stuff.
