At Northside Adventures we take an exciting mobile approach to hunt snapper year round. We can comfortably travel a long distance on a full day charter to take advantage of any seasonal hotspots. We target snapper using a combination of softbaits, slow jigs, micro jigs, jigs & livebaits. One of our favorite forms of fishing is targeting big snapper in shallow water with softbaits. This style of lure fishing demands a stealthy approach and our Minn Kota electric motor is perfect for the task.
A big snapper hitting your lure in shallow water then tearing line off your reel is an exhilarating and addictive experience.
We encourage the catch and release of larger, resident fish.
We also fish the deeper areas of the Gulf year round. Our boat is particularly well suited for chasing work-ups. These feeding frenzies are not just exciting to fish – they can be visually stunning and will often have whales and dolphins in attendance, along with the masses of diving gannets.
We carry the latest fishing equipment to take advantage of any opportunity that presents itself.
Kingfish, kahawai, trevally, gurnard and john dory are all common bycatches when lure fishing for snapper.
