Snapper Fishing is a fun fishing technique. Most of our Snappers are caught bottom fishing on the deep reefs or out on the shipwrecks. We catch quite a few different Snapper here off Miami and Miami Beach. We categorize the Snapper Fishing Miami – Capt. Jays Deep Sea Fishing Miami snappers by shallow water snappers and deep water snappers. A few species will occur in both places, while others always stay in a specific depth.

Miami is home to many different types of snappers

Snapper Fishing Miami, in the shallow reef waters we may typically fish for and catch Yellow Tail Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Mangrove Snapper also known as Gray Snapper & Lane Snapper. There are a few other snappers that live on the shallow reefs that we do not catch that often. Examples are: Dog Snapper, Schoolmaster Snapper & Mahogany Snapper. We concentrate out snapper fishing efforts in the deeper waters. Out on deep reefs or ship wrecks we typically fish for and catch: Vermillion Snapper, Silk Snapper or Yellow Eye Snapper, Blackfin Snapper and the rarest or all of the Snappers of Miami… The North American Red Snapper!

On the 57′ USCG licensed & Inspected Spellbound, we fish for the Snappers off Miami & Miami beach with both live and cut bait. Most of our snappers are caught bottom fishing. Although we will catch a few Mutton Snappers trolling. Some snappers are schooling fish. To fish for them we use multiple hook rigs, and one lucky will catch two or three on the same rig. The best way to target the larger Snappers is with live bait fished on a long leader.
