Looking to find snappers for bait, still around?

So I want to catch some snappers for fluke fishing, but I've never actually targeted them. I have access to a few bay spots and piers, should I just cast a deadly dick for them?

Still around caught some last Sunday they were bigger though probably too big for fluke bait. I used a popping cork tied to a small kastmaster. I also caught some on a 7/8 ounce gold swedish pimple I was really after schooling striped bass but caught snappers instead.

Has the limit always been 3 on Snappers?  I thought it was 10 for some reason.  


New for this year. A good practice is checking the regulations at least a few times each season, they change frequently depending on the species.

Either a snapper popper or a 3/4 oz kastmaster will work in most bays for snappers right now.  They're on the big side for fluke bait, but doable.  I'd think the 3 fish limit might be more of a hindrance than the size though.

 

Sadly I think you'll have more luck finding the snappers than the fluke.

Snapper blitzes or the 90’s were epic. Fried snapper fingers for days.... now we can only keep 3. Never thought id see the day 

I remember the late 70's as a kid, 5 gallon buckets full.
