Grey Snapper

Mangrove (gray) snappers, Vermillion snappers (beeliners) are usually encountered while fishing for red snapper but due to the amount of structure and natural bottom spots in Galveston, they can be found in large congregations on their own. They are excellent table fare and add variety to a day of snapper fishing. They also have the advantages of longer open seasons and more liberal bag limits than their more sought after cousins, the red snapper.

The largest of this trio is the Mangrove Snapper (seen to the right). Smaller versions may be caught inshore during summer months, with larger fish being further offshore. These snapper routinely run 2-4 pounds, with an eight to ten pounder possible. They can be finicky biters as they grow larger, so smaller hidden hooks and fluorocarbon leader can produce good results.

The Vermillion snapper (aka beeliner) can weigh up to ten pounds with most in the 1-3 pound range. They are a brilliantly colored fish (red), resembling a streamlined version of the red snapper. Unlike the Mangrove, they are typically found in deeper water, beginning at around 130 feet. When fishing for these snapper off of Galveston, often we use multiple hooks so you can catch 2 or 3 at a time.
