Hitting the salt this weekend. Going after red snapper on the fly. Any of you done that before? I know they have to be chummed up, but after that, I am clueless on what sorts of leader/flies.

Skip the chum use a spinning rod.  Filet on the boat and sashimi you have.  They live deep.  Some species just arent fly friendly I.e. marlin, grouper, whale.

Don't worry, if I can't make it happen on the fly, there will be gear on board and I'm not gonna sit there and pout.  8)

As to the fly-----Everything in the salt eats a glass minnow, Green back  /krystal flash sides and a pearl stomach. Go sparse on the flash.

From there I cannot be of help since I have never chummed up a snapper in my life.
