Captain Chris responded to my my email request almost immediately and I booked an inshore trip for three. Captain Nick was our skipper for the trip and was very patient and pleasant. The fishing wasn’t very good that day but we still had a great experience. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone.

This was probably one of the best days that we have had in awhile. Captian Chris & first mate Nick were exceptional! Prompt in the morning, prepared, and showed us a great time. Chris knew the best spots to put us on the fish, caught our limit, did some catch and release, enjoyed a beautiful boat ride, and were quite entertained. This trip exceeded my expectations. Thank you!!!! Must do again.

Wow!! Booked Captain Chris for a full day deep sea fishing trip when my daughter and adult grandson came to Florida to visit. Was hoping for a great day of fishing. Weather did not cooperate - COLD and windy but Chris did not disappoint! We caught fish one after another even though we cut our time to half day due to weather. Came home with lots of fish and great fish stories of how none of us got sea sick. Great day! Sure we will book again!!

Chris took our family out fishing for sheepshead in Tampa, and that's most of what was reeled in (along with some snapper, grouper, and grunt – no complaints about those yummy fish)! The service and knowledge of Coastal Outfitters Sport Fishing is unparalleled. Visiting Tampa and planning to fish? I wouldn't hesitate to book another charter with these guys!

I am making this review as an avid angler and retired Navy Veteran. Captin Chris has the ultimate local knowledge, seamanship and best equipment( all high end Shimano) on the market. Scheduling was easy and we limited out on grouper early in the day. I travel and fish a lot of charters and his was one of the best I have been on. If you want safe, fun day with great memories and laughs you should choose this charter.

I’ve grown up fishing in Florida but always impressed to learn and catch something new with Captain Chris. He knows the spots, the tackle, and the time to make it worthwhile. Best to go with him if you want to make a day worthwhile. Thanks for the great times!

What can I say about this fantastic organization? I have fished with Captain Chris in the waters of the Tampa Bay Area, the Florida Keys, and the Bahamas. Every trip was unforgettable! What Captain Chris brings to the table in local knowledge is unrivaled. I hate waking up early, but on days I know I’m fishing with the fine people of this organization the morning can’t come fast enough! Will continue to work with this organization for all of my boating related needs! Captain Chris knows it all and does it all! You won’t be disappointed!

Chris took us out and filled all of our requests! We wanted to do some deep dropping and trolling. The conditions were gorgeous and chris quickly got us hooked up on various bottom fish that we wanted to target. Queen snapper and a limit of yellow eye snapper as well as some vermillion. Follow by a short run he then took us trolling and got out limit of black fin tuna. He kept us busy all day hooked up on different fish. Got a great mixed bag! We Will definitely be going back out with Chris on our next trip Islaorada! If you want a fun experience these are your guys!

The Bruisers – Red Drum Fishing Charter in Florida


Feisty Fun – Gray Snappers Fishing Charter in Florida

The Mangrove Snapper (also known as Gray Snappers) are fiesty, medium-sized fish found throughout the western Atlantic ocean, from the Keys to Brazil. They’re near abundant in the Keys, making them extremely popular and realistic catches for all skill ranges. Gray snappers are often mistaken for juvenile Cubera Snapper because of their appearance, but Mangrove doesn’t grow nearly as large.

How to Identify Mangrove Snappers?

They can be identified with dark brown or grayscales with red-tinted rows and big shining eyes. With canine-like teeth at the front of their upper jaw, they have a mixed general diet. They also have dorsal fins, making them agile and relatively fast. Typically, they have a slender body, largemouth and pointed snout.

Where to Catch Mangrove Snappers in Florida?

The mangrove snapper can be caught throughout the Keys, meaning we have a high chance of finding them all year round. Although they spawn from April to November, summer is when they peak. As the name suggests, young fish are found in mangroves and grass. However, the warm weather attracts them inshore, so we’ll look around piers, bridges and docks. Alternatively, you can sometimes find them in deeper waters and after sundown.

How Big is a Mangrove Snapper?

Mangrove snappers are the smallest of Snappers. We rarely find a catch over 18″ and 10lbs. Despite that, they can live for at least 10-20 years, maturing fast and reproducing from around two years of age. With such fast reproduction rates, they’re not threatened which allows for lots of fishing and farming! On our Mangrove Snapper Fishing Charters in Florida, most catches are around 1-3lbs, so if you get anything bigger, we’ll be impressed!

What Gear Do You Need to Catch a Mangrove Snapper in the Keys?

The trick to a successful Mangrove Snapper Fishing Charter in Florida is live bait and a wise selection of lines. They’re greedy predators and will bite on just about anything. However, the best bet for inshore Gray Snapper is Mud Minnows. These little fish are very durable on the hook and almost always guarantee a Mangrove Snapper bite. You could also use: Live Shrimp, Small Finger Mullet, Scaled Sardines, Small Pinfish and Small Crabs.

Mangrove Snapper is light tackle fish and any inshore gear will work well. Most anglers use a light spinning rod and reel with a medium-light action rock. We’ve also seen many people use Saltwater baitcasting reels while using live bait around structures. Because Mangrove Snapper is usually found near obstacles, a heavy cover braided line is a wise choice as it’s super strong and has excellent abrasion resistance. Those big shining Mangrove Snapper eyes aren’t just for looks too, as they have great eyesight. That’s why a low visibility leader is essential.

How Do You Catch Mangrove Snappers in the Keys?

If you’re new to fishing, we’ll guide you every step of the way. Once we find an area or structure that fish are calling home, we’ll cast the bait just a few yards up the current. Although many anglers think the deeper waters are the place to cast, we’ll look in those areas where they’re hiding for cover. With a bit of patience, the action will then begin! The snapper will sneak out of their protection and head for your bait!

Mangrove Snappers are aggressive, so they’ll usually hit the bait hard, making your rod bent instantly. You’ll need to be careful not to jerk the hook away, and instead, use a slight upward motion before reeling in the line.

Fun Facts about Mangrove Snappers

  • Mangrove Snapper spawns in large groups offshore, releasing millions of eggs during full moons.
  • They can live as long as 32 years.
  • Mangrove Snapper has been reported to feed on falling bats near the entrances of caves!
  • The largest Mangrove snapper caught on record was 44lbs!

Regulations on Mangrove Snapper Fishing Charters in Florida

In Florida, Mangrove Snapper is reproducing in healthy numbers, which means you can take your catch home to eat! The FWC allows for year-round Mangrove Snapper Fishing Charters in Florida, with a 5-per person bag limit and 10 aggregate bag limit.

Is Mangrove Snapper Good to Eat?

Although relatively small, Mangrove Snapper gives a delicious white, sweet and flaky meat. It’s one of the reasons our Mangrove Snapper Fishing Charters in Islamorada are so popular. Fried, baked or broiled – they’re delicious! We also support you choosing to release any fish back into the waters, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a photo alongside your catch to boast about for the rest of your life!
