Species 101 : Mangrove Snapper (Lutjanus griseus)
Snapper is the most Common Fish Caught all over the caribbean, These fishes are one of my favorite out of all just because of the tastes. Soon I'll post over how to cook Snapper MY WAY!
Where To Find Mangrove Snappers At?
Mangrove Snapper are best found between Ocean Reefs or also just in the Grass Flats. Again I mostly catch that when I go to fish out in the bay in North Miami with is mostly the grass flats. Also I’ve gone out on “The Reward” and off that ship I’ve caught Big Mangrove’s.
Best Used To Catch Mangrove Snappers?
Mangrove Snappers Shoot for Squid, Shrimp, all type of Sardines, Even themselves! They also go for other Fishes like Grunt and etc... I’ve seen a lot of movement with them with Squid and Shrimp.
What Hook Would Be Best Used To Catch Mangrove Snapper?
I say the best hook would be Circle Hook, Just because they take big bites so when they bite it’s a automatic catch. I would suggest you use the hook I referenced in my other article. The Mustad Demon Perfect Circle Hooks 4/0 these have never failed me and I hope they never will. Another hook would be a J hook those are also good but you’d have to set the hook in the fish's mouth.
What Lines To Be Used To Catch Mangrove Snapper?
Personally what I use is braid 40Lb I know that’s a little to much but just in case I hook something else my line wouldn’t break. But all you really need is 20Lb braid or monofilament and 20Lb Leader, best suggested is Bullbuster Line.
