About Your Trip

Red snappers are big game fish in the area's waters! Still recovering from a nearly disastrous over-fishing period, we catch these fish for fun. Red snappers tend to put up quite a fight by using a head-shaking tactic, making catching one of these beauties a real treat! These fish are commonly found around 6-8 pounds but can also grow to be about 20 pounds! Catching these fish require dropping a line deep into a strong current and Captain Buddy can help increase your chances of catching one of these amazing fish!
