Hmmm. Thinking it’s about time you reached out for help with your snapper fishing. 
Have you inquired about snapper fishing guides? Maybe you know a Snapper Popper Pro Staffer?

30# max cautro, 80# leader for snappers????

Those must be 100lb snappers in Jersey.

I use 10 - 12 braid with #20 mono leader

2000 or 3000 reels.

Small rod.

I have a Shakespeare Durango, 6' 6" rod, with Shimano RX 2000 

Lots of fun

If you’re targeting smaller blue fish why would you not go with a very light wire leader!

You never mentioned how you are going to be targeting them!

Are you going to be doing the ole’ tried-and-true method with a bobber and some sort of spearing?

That’s about the most effective way that I know if you were strictly targeting snapper blues!

When I go after them with little chrome, I use a very light wire leader and swap out the clip with a TA clip!

Usually, I’m using a 6 to 7 foot rod, light to medium action with a 2000 to 3000 size reel 

With light mono or braid!

Get a light, medium light, or medium action rod at least 7" preferably longer.  Small reel 2500 - 3500 max. 10lb braid. 30 - 50 mono leader.

If you wanna have alot of fun and you aren't looking for a setup for your son. Get a fly rod.
