What are Placida Red Snapper Fishing Charters known for?
American Red Snapper (ARS) can be caught year round for sport but have a very limited harvest season. They are found in deep water, normally 50+ miles from shore, and provide a great fight. They are some of the best eating fish and are caught in excess of 10 pounds on a regular basis on our Palm Island fishing charters. Red Snapper are the target species on these charters but are not the only species caught. Other snapper, grouper, tuna, amberjack and various other species can be caught as well.
What other species will we catch on our Placida Red Snapper Fishing Charter?
Jack, grunts, blackfin tuna, permit & American Red Snapper or the occasional Mahi can be caught on our Placida Red Snapper charters.
All of these species are targeted with great confidence throughout most of the year. They provide fun for all ages and skill levels.
