Fishing for Mangrove Snappers Inshore around piers, docks, seawalls, and bridge pilings…



There are lots of ways to fish for Mangrove Snappers Inshore.. I like to keep things simple…


First I catch some small LIVE bait like,

Mullet,  Mud Minnow, Mojarra, Menhaden, Pigfish, Pinfish, Threadfin Herring etc… all about 2-3 inches in size. (See) Bait fish Identification


Next I rig my poles with; 20 lb braided or mono line, using a 5-6 foot 20 lb leader line, attaching it to a swivel, and a slip sinker, so the line moves freely through the eye of the sinker. Then I use a small 2/0 J hook, and attach the live bail through the top read portion of the dorsal Finn.


Bridge Pilings:

For Bridge Pilings, I anchor up to some pilings at one of our local bridges, and lower the bait to the bottom, keeping the line tight with no slack, so you could feel the bait fish and notice any movement or hits on the bait.


The below video is me catching my limit of mangroves in New Smyrna Beach FL.


Docks:

For docks, I tie up to some pilings at any one of our local docks, and lower the bait to the bottom as close to the pilings as possible, keeping the line tight with no slack, so you could feel the bait fish and notice any movement or hits on the bait.


Seawalls:

For Seawalls, I anchor close leaving just enough room to cast between my boat and the sea wall, keeping my line tight with no slack, so you could feel the bait fish and notice any movement or hits on the bait.


Piers:

For Piers, I tie up to some pilings at any one of our local Piers, and lower the bait to the bottom as close to the pilings as possible, keeping the line tight with no slack, so you could feel the bait fish and notice any movement or hits on the bait.


It’s really not to hard to get a system going when the Mangrove are running… The main thing is to keep your leader line long, 5-6 foot. You will notice that you will be catching more and larger ones with a longer leader line.


Good luck and let me know how this method works out for you.
