The Gray Snapper is characterized by his darker copper to bronze hue, over a darker to like gradient - from top to bottom. The tail is large and unforked. The brow slopes into a large odd shaped mouth, holding small teeth and leading to a flatter underside. Their is a stripe that runs the length of his flank, just under the dorsal fin. This line extemds from snout to tail and is ever more present when the fish is feeding or excited.

These fish are found in calm shallow waters when the are youunger and migrate to the open water, mostly encountered at reefs and wrecks in the deeper waters off the coast as they mature.

Live shrimp and baitfish, as well as dead cut baitfish, crab and shrimp make for the best natural bait, while topwater plugs, poppers, jigs and streamers make for the best artificial bait.
