    Better to go to artificial reef? South of Ponce or North? Does it matter? Thanks..

    My technique fishing for mangrove snapper this time of year in the river is to find docks with deeper water,say 12' to 20' , with current, and fish the bottom structure with live shrimp or mud minnows when the tide is starting to slow down near the end of tidal phase.

    An incoming tide has been more productive for me as I suppose the cleaner water may have a positive effect.

    The deeper rock piles at tip of the jetty is good but you will need to arrive early and aren't bothered by crowding.

    I use 20 lb Berkley Vanish fluoro main line and leader with a 1/0 Mustad on a Carolina rig.

    Great, thank you. I will go tomorrow and see how we do. I’m going offshore and will try the rock piles on the sites. Thank you.

    We've had good luck up and down the jetties. Tight against the rocks.

    I am planning on taking the kids out by the jetty, but Forecast is high winds, if that's the case we will hit the long stretch of docks until dunlawton bridge.

    I usually do better on the natural bottom areas offshore for the mangroves but have caught them off of most of the artificial sites too. The last few trips they have been tough to find for us. Over the last year though they have been pretty thick. Good luck with your search. They are out there.

    Cool, thank you all for the feedback. I appreciate it. I will try the natural reefs next time.
