Live Bait and Chum Fishing Mangrove Snapper
This has become one of the most popular fish to replace the red snapper with the shorter seasons imposed on the red snapper. On our Offshore trips we always bring a set of ‘ mangrove rods’ to catch this fierce fighter. Most of the time when fishing them we are throwing live croakers or drifting a hidden hook in dead bait to a fish you can see. When they hit, it’s all you can do to turn them and get them to the boat as you must use lighter lines to get them to bite. It makes for a challenge and a great fishing experience!
