New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 14, 1994, New Braunfels, Texas 6A HyaBZatunq Sunday Aug is spoon had snapper seeing red Keith Warren Summer is the most popular time of year to fry bottom fishing forred snap per Generally the gulf is calm which makes it easy to fish Snapper like many 1 fish are structure oriented Oil rigs well platforms buoys and old wrecks are common spots snapper and lot of other fish call home The typical bottom fisherman uses dead bait either squid or ice fish and fishes it on the bottom directly below the boat Because of depths and cur rents the angler needs to use a heavy weight to drop the bait to the bottom and still be able to feel the bite Rarely do I use a weight over six ounces The most common problem a bot tom fisherman has is having to deal with trigger fish These small mouthed fish are plentiful at the surface and will pick your bait clean before it gets to the bottom if youre not careful Trig gers are great to eat but because of their size and tough skin many feel they are not worth the trouble On a recent offshore trip our crew ran out of bait with only a few keeper snapper in the box They decided to try for a different species because if you dont have dead bait snapper wont bite Before leaving the oil rig I suggest ed we try artificial lures Specifically spoons that are made for vertical jig ging I dropped a one and onehalf ounce Hopkins spoon over board and watched the trigger fish turn away as they discovered it wasnt real The 12 pound test line and little current allowed the spoon to fall quickly toward the bottom All of a sudden the spoon quit falling I engaged the reel and set the hook on what turned out to be a nice four pound snapper Everyone on board was now tying on a spoon In the next two hours this spoon jig ging technique rewarded our crew with 28 keeper snapper three kingfish and a strawberry grouper We also caught dozens of undersized amber jack and even trigger fish with this method Its rare to catch snapper on artificial lures but when there are so many fish living around a rig and competing for a limited food supply artificials work great For a free Texas Angler bumper sticker send
