Absolute Florida Flats Fishing likes to fish for these hard fighting great tasting fish on light tackle. They are very leader shy and we must use small hooks like a #1. As they grow, they become more difficult to fool especially in daylight. Best bait are the pilchard hatch, scaled sardines, live chumming and cut bait chumming with them is best. Sometimes you can bring the school right to the surface with heavy chumming techniques. When hooked mangrove snappers make strong runs, the wage a bull dogging battle all the way to boat side. They are gray or pinkish above and light on the underside, usually with an overall reddish hue that can range from coppery to brick red. They have a black line from snout over the eye which darkens when they’re in the mood. They are great tasting white filets, cooked your way. THESE SNAPPER TRIPS ARE FUN FAMILY TRIPS..
