You still have to follow the bag limits right? I watched some videos and saw some pictures with party boats coming back with many snappers. I don't understand why there are bag limits on snapper they are very plentiful according to the videos I see.
The bag limit is two (2) during federal season in federal waters .... Past 9 nm.
Inside 9 nm is considered state waters and the bag limit is four (4) per person .... open 365 days a year.
The videos don't lie and like Lmgeeri said they are so thick they are a nuisance.
Dose anyone have any tips for catching these snapper?
Trust me .... you won't need tips for catching them. A dead sardine on a circle hook lasts about 2.6 seconds.
I am going on a Charter Boat this Saturday. I am thinking of three companies Dolphin Dock, Fisherman Wharf, and Deep Sea HQ. Anyone have any opinions on these charters. Thank you.
If you are going with these folks you mentioned you are likely going on a head boat (party boat) and not a charter boat. Just a terminology thing.
And if you haven't already signed up and have reservations it may be too late.
I like all three for different types of fishing. For snapper though I would go with either Dolphin Docks or Deep Sea Hdqtrs.
