Red Snapper Miami
Red Snapper Miami! The cold water has finally made it down South and we caught our first Genuine Red Snapper of the season. True red snappers are a rare catch off Miami and Miami Beach. Although we do catch a few every year, and they are always a welcome sight. All of our Snappers are caught in state waters, outside of three miles we are at almost 700 feet.
Catching Red Snapper Miami
This almost 20 pound Genuine Red Snapper was caught by Capt. Manny and Chris dropping a live pinfish on one of the deep wrecks off Miami Beach. We use a circle hook attached to a long length of 60 pound leader. We attach the leader to the rod with a three way swivel and also attach a dropper loop for the lead weight. We use anything from about a half pound to three pounds depending on depth, current and wind conditions.
