Pacific Red Snapper

The Pacific Red Snapper will be a fun and challenging catch on your next sport fishing trip in Panama!

Mostly only caught at night. Sometimes, normally during the dry season, we get them during the day while drifting chunks or live small baits over structure that comes out of 200 – 300 feet of water. Of course they are delicious, targeted commercially and over-fished during spawning periods. When our government gets around to closing snapper breeding spots, as I believe they someday will, maybe these will come back like our Dorado are beginning to.

The Pacific Red Snapper is a popular game fish that is primarily found in:

  • Mexico
