Without a doubt, the most sought after fish in our southern coastal waters is the mighty snapper. In Victoria, men, women and children are caught up with snapper fever around the end of the football season - a fever that will last until after Christmas. In other states, the fever is the same - only the start and End of the season differs. From the big time big red picks up the bait and starts his powerful run until you strike and feel those mighty tail thumps, both you and the snapper are hooked. Rex Hunt has been hooked on snapper fishing for over two decades, his skill and expertise in this type of fishing is legendary.
