Gear for Red Snapper

Red snapper have been harvested from the Gulf of Mexico since as early as the 1840's. They are an extremely popular gamefish and are highly sought after for their table fair. Red snapper can grow up to 40 inches long, can weigh up to 50 pounds and live up to 50 years.

They reach sexual maturity when they are around 2 years old and spawn from May to October near coral reefs or rock ledges. The larger females contribute the majority of eggs to the population . One 24 inch female red snapper, which is 8 years old, produces as many eggs as 212 17 inch, 5 year old, females. 

We get alot of questions about exactly which rod reel line and hook we are using for different applications.
