Though maybe not as revered as the mighty Snook or as impressive as a colossal Redfish, you’ll never see an inshore angler upset with a cooler full of gray snapper. These snapper hang out anywhere from mid-depth to bottom near virtually any inshore structure, earning them the nickname “mangrove” snapper. Live bait such as shrimp or minnows are most appetizing to the snapper – but be sure to rig it up on low visibility leader as this fish has excellent eyesight. Catch enough of them to make Snapper Almondine and you won’t be disappointed – it’s even Captain Andy’s favorite meal!
