Mangrove Snapper Fishing Charters

I was once told by a guide that "catching mangrove snapper is and old man's sport"e;. So be it! I'm getting old, but I swear that my kids love to catch these little snappers more than the big ones. Besides if you'r patient and use a good live chumline you're likely to catch other gamefish as well. Mangroves are awesome to eat and you won't be disappointed in their abiltiy to entertain you for hours on end as they love to bite on live bait and light line.
