—Tampa Bay mangrove snapper have continued to gather heavily on structure near the beaches and passes, with a strong morning bite seeming to be the ticket to a full cooler.

—They have been eating shrimp, small crabs, pinfish, dead/live pilchards, and have responded well to chum.

—Very strong fighters for their size, if we don’t get them to the boat quickly they will pull us into the structure or be lost to sharks, goliath grouper, and barracuda. It seems that we aren’t the only ones who love the taste of fresh snapper!
