A Note About Catching Snapper Offshore
“Catch and Release”
Yes, Red Snapper are plentiful on the fabulously productive artificial reefs off the coast of Daytona Beach and anglers fishing offshore with Captain CB are catching plenty! However, as of Summer 2017 in Atlantic federal waters (3 nautical miles or more offshore) where red snapper are plentiful, they are “Catch and Release” only! Red Snapper are still LOTS OF FUN to Catch!
Many other species of snapper found offshore when fishing the artificial reefs near Daytona Beach and along the Florida Atlantic Coast are “Keepers” including Lane Snapper, Vermillion Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Blackfin Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper and Mahogany Snapper.
