How to Catch Mutton Snappers

Learning how to catch mutton snappers in the Florida Keys can be very fun. This mutton snapper fishing technique can be used to catch mutton snappers any where in the world.

Years ago, I started working on a long leader removable weight system for drifting live baits deep for wahoo, kingfish, mutton snappers, black groupers and wahoo.

Below is the video of the original removable rig I used for the video. However, I did not show what I use on my fishing charters as that technique is proprietary, and I did not want it released to the world.

Several local South Florida Fishing YouTube Channels copied this video and released it for content after publication on the Balloon Fisher King website. The below video was used at ICAST 2020. Please note that I no longer use the technique shown in the video below.

Although this system still works, it is not what I currently use. In this video with East Side Surf Fishing, we caught our limit of Black Grouper using a modified removable weight system I call the “Mutton Crusher Rig. ” It is the absolute best mutton snapper fishing long leader fishing technique. 

Below is a list of the Good Karma Sportfishing YouTube Channels that feature my current mutton crusher rig in action.
