In Clearwater, fishing for snapper is incredibly popular among our Clearwater fishing charter clients. This is because they are extremely tasty and catching them requires less complicated equipment and techniques - and they are not as challenging as other fish species. The waters off the coast of Clearwater are home to numerous snapper varieties including the red snapper, yellowtail snapper, red porgies, vermillion snapper and others.
When fishing for snapper, our Clearwater fishing charters travel to reefs with clear water and a fast-flowing current. All types of bait can be used successfully but we prefer to use live shrimp because it simply works best. We drift our bait in the water which means that other fish tend to steal it. This makes targeting a specific fish quite difficult. Snapper can also be caught at wrecks, but the areas where fish congregate are smaller and denser with all types of fish – making targeting snapper a real challenge.
You will have a true advantage when snapper fishing with us because our Clearwater fishing captains and crews all specialize in catching these amazing fish. New anglers will become acquainted with the snapper fish, while experienced anglers will have the perfect opportunity to improve their skills. The vast knowledge and experience of our Clearwater fishing crews is continually shared with every angler onboard.
Many seafood restaurants in Clearwater serve snapper dishes, and hungry diners devour them. These fantastically delicious fish are targeted by commercial fishermen to supply these restaurants. They are also hunted by recreational fishermen and fishing charters because they are so tasty. Take your catch with you to some of these restaurants. Their chefs will ensure that your catch is the most delicious meal you have had in Clearwater – at set prices far cheaper than ordering dishes off their menus.
