Fishing the Mangroves offers anglers a chance to catch several different species of fish in fairly shallow water. Mangroves will hold mangrove snapper, snook, grouper, sheepshead, redfish and others. Tidal changes help improve the bite tremendously and you will often find lots more fish in the mangroves during a high tide. You can fish the mangroves with a variety of different baits and lures, but most anglers will fish with live bait. Pilchards, pinfish and shrimp will work for a variety of fish in the mangroves.
