Mangrove snapper is another very popular species to Fish for in the Florida Keys.
How to Catch Mangrove Snapper?
Fishing for mangrove snapper is done on the patch reefs and the deep reefs all along the Florida Keys. With 20 pound tackle and live baits catching these large snapper can really put up a great fight. Both day and night fishing trips are available to fish for this species.
These fish are built for power with strong deep bodies and a broom shaped tail you have to work hard to get them from the bottom. These fish weigh anywhere from 1 to 7 pounds and is another very good eating fish. After your fishing charter trip and once we return back from the dock, I will fillet all your catch so they will be ready to cook. If you’re too tired to cook from catching these hard fighting fish, I can send you in the right direction to have one of our many fine restaurants cook your catch for you.
Mangrove snapper are an excellent year-round species to target, and can be combined with other types of fishing. To see what else is in season, check out our Florida Keys fishing calendar. To book a Marathon fishing charter call Capt. Brent Kindell at 305-481-9018 or use the contact form.
