This is incredibly aggressive fish that is fun to catch no matter how big it is. Yearling fish are called snappers and fishing for them is a great way to introduce kids to fishing. They are great fighters and easy to catch, A solid fish is anything over 12lbs and a trophy fish is over 20lbs. They are also a popular bait for fluke (summer flounder), tuna, and especially sharks. They can be caught using virtually any method that is used for other species; live bait, chunks, plugging, jigging, trolling, etc.
