If you want a fish that'll put up a fight, snapper is your game. Get in on the intense action with snapper fishing rigs from Bomber Saltwater Lures.
It's hard to generalize about snapper since there are more than 100 species. You'll find a host of snapper varieties swimming anywhere from backcountry mangroves to deep coastal reefs. Snapper sizes range just as broadly as their habitat. The snapper caught along the Gulf of Mexico last year averaged about 5 lbs.
Snapper like to congregate along the bottom near rocks, ledges, ridges, bridge pilings and artificial reefs, including offshore oil rigs and shipwrecks. Alabamians call their state the Red Snapper Capital of the World. Head 3 miles out into the Gulf in 400- to 500-foot depths, and you'll have a hard time catching anything else.
Troll for snapper in deeper water but cast for them near structured mid-depth and shallow areas. Either way, Bomber's snapper lures are equipped with the action, realism and durability you need first to get a snapper chomping and then to reel him in.
One of Bomber's snapper fishing rigs features a first-of-its-kind, wire-through skeletal structure. This structure links all of the lure's key components, creating an all-but-unbreakable link for maximum strength. Another of our snapper fishing rigs features a tantalizing side-to-side wiggle that passing snapper can't resist. Razor-sharp, saltwater-grade hooks linked to super-duty components guarantee your prize snapper won't get away.
