Tackling Snapper

Damon Sherriff

Chasing Snapper is a rewarding past time. It is more than just a hobby it is a major part of my life and I love it.

This time of year is normally a good time to chase big snapper. When the water temperature starts dropping the Tamar gets a run of larger fish. Pinkies or smaller snapper are normally caught through the warmer months. Snapper are caught in many areas. They are a bit like bream. You can catch them over mud, sand, reef and rubble. They eat mainly crabs but will still eat other food such as shell fish, cunji, crayfish and small fish. The Tamar has got thousands of snapper spots. Snapper move from bay to bay. Half the fun of snapper fishing is locating the school.
In this article I will discuss tackle for snapper and I hope that it will help you during this quest.

Great Lake 1/2/2014

We decided to head up to Great Lake today with George Papp hoping to get onto some fish out in the middle of the lake in the waves. We arrived around 11 am and finished around 5pm. Conditions were good, with a northerly wind around 10 to 15 knots and a clear sky, but did not see a fish. It must have spent a couple of hours out there, so we decided to head into Canal Bay for a look.
Things were starting to look promising when i spotted one cruising on top not far out from the western shore. Out went the dry and he took it straight away. I managed five browns on drys drifting down this shoreline and missed a few others on the strike.
eorge had a bad day. He scored a blank and had a couple on but hook pulling free. That's fishing!
