Mangrove Snapper - (Lutjanus griseus) - The mangrove or gray snapper is quite prevalent in the backwater as well as offshore. Inshore, their weight is usually in the range of 1-3 pounds, but their offshore relatives run 8-10 pounds or more.. They are a very agressive fish and will readily take a properly presented fly. As their name implies, they are often found adjacent to and up in the mangroves. They tend to cluster in small groups and their main food is small baitfish and shrimp. Watch out for these little guys when you take them off the hook; they have pretty sharp teeth and they won't hesitate to try to grab onto a finger that's in range. They aren't called "snappers" for nothing!
