Florida Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Summer snapper in the bay and in the park are a challenge on fly. Mangrove snapper are very cautious, cast a small fly like a shrimp pattern and strip at medium speed, if you catch one you might have to move to another spot they will shy seeing a brother hooked!! They are excellent eating and plentiful the size limit is 10".
