A nice pair of Mutton snapper find their way to the dinner table. Spooling the bottom is one of the key tricks to landing one of these beautiful fish. Please feel free to ask our crews for a demonstration of how to spool the bottom, it may just improve your chances for a nice snapper dinner.
Yellow-tail snapper, like the one pictured above, feed mainly over the reef instead of the bottom. These fish have keen eye-sight so a lighter leader should produce better results. Yellow-tails will often hit a sardine three or four times before running off with it. Because of their soft mouths, an angler should just reel instead of setting up when a fish hits.
Back at the dock our crews can fillet your catch and maybe share some recipes. Fish is best when it’s fresh!
