Snapper fishing is an exciting sport. It doesn’t matter whether it is Red Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, Mutton Snapper or any of the other Snapper varieties, they all respond favorably to chum. Fishing with chum has a trickle down effect. Chum attracts all the smaller fish such as grunts, pinfish, pigfish, whitebait, Blue Runners, and most other smaller fish. They all tear into the chum creating a lot of commotion.  Big Snapper move in to see what the commotion is about and to bully away the smaller fish for an easy meal. When fishing for Snapper in Florida, many times we will use Chum Drop  wrapped around our baited hook and send it down. The small fish pick away the ball of Chum Drop and the larger snappers move in to engulf the bait. Detecting a bite when snapper fishing using braided line is very easy. Use a sliding sinker rig. Rest your sinker on the bottom while keeping your line tight. You will feel the tell tale picking of smaller fish on the ball of chum drop. Quickly you will notice the tapping goes away. This is because the smaller fish are running away from the bait and a bigger fish is nearby. The telltale indication is usually one or two large taps and in some cases the snapper running away quickly (back to cover of course).
