The Mangrove Snappers are fired up right now on the deeper grass flats. If you know where to find them ( and I do) all you need is a couple blocks of chum and your bait of choice. Before you know it they will be in the slick and you will be looking forward to dinner. Mangrove or Mangos or Mangs or Grey Snapper which ever you want to call them are one of my favorite fish to eat. So when they are biting good I like to take advantage of it. Don't get me wrong though I only like to keep enough for a dinner or two. The average fish right now that I'm catching is in the 14 to 18 inch range which to me is about the best size for the table.
