Fishing for Pagrus Snapper | Snapper Fishing :

Snapper are structure dwellers, they feed over particular areas of reef, gravel or broken bottom and to catch them consistently, offshore anglers must know some of these places. Snapper can be found over a range of habitats although most of these locations have a hard bottom.

Snapper will take a very wide range of baits including prawns, squid, pilchards, fish fillets, shellfish and live baits. The pick of the baits are fresh squid, fillets of striped tuna, frigate or slimy mackerel cut into strips and blue pilchards. If the snapper won't take these baits then they're just not on the bite.


Cooking Pagrus Snapper:

Snapper comes in many sizes, making it very versatile. It is excellent as a buffet piece, whole, filleted or as cutlets. Snapper is superb smoked and is also becoming popular for sashimi. The heads and frames of snapper are sought after as they are excellent for use in finfish stews and stocks due to their colour and sweetness of flesh. A tender, white to pinkish flesh and a sweet and mild flavour make snapper a popular and versatile finfish, suited to poaching, steaming, frying, baking, grilling, barbecuing, smoking or sashimi.
