Red Snapper Fishing

Red Snapper Fishing is currently closed coastwide for conservation reasons.

Red Snappers are properly called Yellow Eye Rockfish. They are plentiful near Port Hardy and are among the most beautiful to catch. Found 200 feet or more down on the deep edges of reefs, these fish are hooked with fish bait or jigs.

The Red Snapper's body is bright orange and its eyes are large and gold. At 20 pounds, these fish are now protected but many other Rockfish are still retainanble.

A Red Snapper fishing charter gives you a catch - and a photo - that will make you proud.
