The bigger mangrove snapper are getting more aggressive inside Tampa Bay, fish in the 12-16" range are beginning to be the common size. I prefer a 3/8 to 3/4 "stewie jig" from TBFC they are made in Ruskin with access by boat on the little manatee river. Contact me to book a trip.
That’s a good one! I’ve never used a stewie jig, looks like they work well. I will have to get may hands on some.
