How To Use The Red Snapper Secret Weapon

Capt. Dylan likes to use bonito strips because they’re smelly, oily, and red snapper can’t turn them down.

Here are some tips when fishing for red snapper:

  • When you get a bite, crank the hook, don’t try to set it…remember: “Crank it, don’t yank it.”
  • When you hit bottom, hold bottom. That means when the boat goes up, keep the rod tip down, and vice versa. This will help your bait not bounce on the bottom.
  • If you miss the fish, get your bait back down to the bottom asap. They’ll come back for more.
  • Use a double snell rig. This will increase your chances of hooking the fish.
  • Occasionally take the time to straighten out your leader. This will make the bait look more natural.

Conclusion

If the snapper aren’t biting, drop down an irresistible strip of a bonito, but hang on, because the bites will be coming shortly!

Nice video on the east coast space center area I use live croakers and seem to out do others in the area by getting bigger red snapper.

in our area we do not have croakers, but live bait does work well for them too… try this method with the bonita strip sometime, there’s lots of bonita in your area too right? They may work surprisingly well for you, remember to drop them to bottom SLOW

Great video! The Snapper Mastery course was excellent! And perfect timing because that’s where I’m going to be in a few days! I have couple of Bonita lined up to bring, and I’m bringing a flat of cigar minnows that I will start brining at home the night before.
