If you are an avid angler, you wouldn’t want to miss the American Red Snapper season. Even if you are new to fishing, you can still enjoy this type of fishing trip. For novices, the best method of learning how to catch a red snapper is knowing their location and habits. Familiarizing yourself with these won’t be too difficult given that fishing for American Red Snapper is one of the most popular game fish in the southeastern United States as well as in the Gulf of Mexico.
One of the first things you need to know about red snapper fishing is that the older it is, the deeper it goes into the water. They can be found in depths of between 100 and 500 feet. Meanwhile, younger snappers tend to swim in the sandy or muddy bottoms and in shallow waters. If you plan to catch the big ones, be sure to have tackles and lines that range in the 50 to 100 lb. class. You should also have a rod with a sturdy backbone and butt, and sensitive tip. You might want to include an alarm bell at the tip of the rod so you will have an indicator in case you caught a snapper. You will find a lot of lines in the market today, but, it is recommended that you go with braided because it is resistant to water and it has minimal stretch as well as sensitive.
If you want to catch a lot, it is best to fish in an anchored charter so you can quickly reel in the snapper. Because if not, the snapper might go down to the bottom once again. Use an enticing bait so you can keep the snapper around. A few good options are cut fish, pilchards, squid, and dead cigar minnows.
