Night Mangrove Snapper Fishing in Review... 2018
Snapper are very common and can be found all over the world. To date there has been over 100 species of snappers discovered.
Here is a snapper we seldom see in central Florida waters:

Deep-drop snapper offer an extreme challenge. When you pass the 100 fathom mark the snapper are very different, but can be plentiful:


Our own Florida is the perfect place for snappers to thrive since they prefer warmer climates. 
One of our most sought after snapper is the Mangrove snapper. Mangrove snapper, sometimes called Gray snapper, is a species native to the western Atlantic Ocean from Massachusetts to Brazil, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea. Mangrove snapper can be found in a wide variety of habitats from fresh water, near shore, as well as deep-sea. They are sought after because they tend to be very hard to fool. Mangos, as they are often called in Central Florida, love to hit-and-run without paying for their dinner. Their food value is excellent. 
Night fishing for Mangrove snapper can be very good while offering even the most experienced a real challenge.
Captain Garett Hubbard, before challenging the Mango snapper, loves to warm up on what we call Grey snapper. They are plentiful, fun to catch, and very good eating:

The overnight Florida Fisherman ll Captains, Captain Garett, and Captain Bryon, are experts at finding Mangrove snapper in deep water:

    Yup.  I think it's one of the biggest bush league practices in fishing; Either stand by the actual size of your fish, or don't put the pictures up for scrutiny.  It's like standing naked next to one of those mini coke cans; it may make it look a little bigger, but it's not going to fool anyone when it counts.
