Hi Vishal,

Nice picture! What tackle and bait did you use to hook this one?

The image is bigger than what is allowed on the forum as per the rules. Please have a look at http://www.indianangler.com/viewtopic.php?t=136
for instructions on how to resize your pictures before posting.

I will make the chages to this picture for now.

Cheers
Bops

Bops: Thanks.. will take note of image sizing the next time.

I caught the snapper on a lure while trawling.

Fred: The experience at Vijaydurg was mindblowing. Would fall short of words to describe my experience.. Ive seen ur pic there..the guys there did talk a lot good about you.. Hey Fred On the second day i hooked something really big but could not land it...guess it was a gropper

Hi Vishal,

Thats a good Fish. I am not too shure but I think that fish is a Mangrove Jack. Very similar to the red snapper . The confirmation will be easy. The Mangrove Snapper is generally greyish pink when you land them and gradually change to red in about 20 minutes. Did you notice this colur change. Iam curious.

Tight Lines,
Jeen

Yep, it's a Mangrove Jack.
More information here: http://filaman.ifm-geomar.de/Summary/Sp ... hp?id=1407
If you click on the picture, there are lots of photos that make positive identification easy.

Strictly, a red Snapper is an unrelated fish but "Red Snapper" does seem to be the name most commonly used to describe a Mangrove Jack whenever I've been in India.

Hi,

Agree with Ken, it is a Mangrove Jack they call them Red Snapper here, the real Red Snapper is found in colder water.

As far as Mangrove jacks go, the ones caught inshore are deeper red, the ones caught off reefs are paler and they are the same species Lutjanus argentimaclus

There is a fish called the the Red Bass Lutjanus Bohar normally caught offshore on reefs and wrecks that looks exactly like the Mangrove Jack, but is loaded with toxins (ciguatera).
