We use all kinds of bait to catch snapper, but live shrimp definitely produces the best results. Our Islamorada fishing charters seek out reefs or wrecks where these fish are found schooling. Ideally, reefs with clear water and a fast-flowing current are better than wrecks. This is because we drift live shrimp (which is expensive and tends to be eaten by other fish) in the water. In wrecks, the areas where fish congregate are much smaller and therefore denser with different fish species who all attempt to steal our bait. This makes targeting a specific fish extremely challenging.

Commercial fishermen hunt snapper to supply the seafood restaurants in Islamorada. Hungry diners devour them in large numbers. Snapper are extremely delicious, which helps to explain their popularity. Recreational anglers and fishing charters also target snapper in order to grace dinner tables in Islamorada.
