Anyone willing to share tips in targeting mangrove snapper? We catch a few each trip while snapper fishing out of Port A but am interested in whether mangroves prefer and tend to congregate at certain water depths, structure, etc. Any tips would be appreciated.

There is a bunch at the Galveston Yacht Basin and I have heard anything of the shrimp persuasion will likely get a bite!

These are great and easy fish to catch and make great ceviche or dinner in a skillet. Fish the Surfside Jetty and/or the rock piles (submerged) against the bank in Freeport Harbor with a small split shot sinker and live shrimp. You may also want to use a 20 lb mono leader but that often spooks them.

ask venicenporta

Perhaps you should ask venicenporta how to catch some mangroves -- did you catch his post yesterday titled "mangrove madness on the Ambush" -- obviously he has a little insight on this particular subject -- good luck!

Mangrove snapper

I catch about two mangrove snappers a year offshore but did not know they were common off the jetties in Freeport and Galveston. Thanks for the informative posts.
