Bolhas Tours team challenges you for a red snapper boat fishing adventure, iconic specimen in Sesimbra and in Portugal seas!

In this form of on-board sport fishing, which we carry out throughout the year in Sesimbra and Lisbon, you can count on our teams to take you to specific capture areas for this species.

The red snapper is one of the species of choice for sport fishermen, whether caught with a fluke or at the bottom. Its fishing is one of the most exciting boat fishing activities that can be done on the high seas and for most of the year in Sesimbra or off the coast of Lisbon.

  • Red Snapper  - Pagrus pagrus: from Sparidae family, it’s one of the most wanted fish by recreational anglers. While young they live in sea bottoms of up to 60 meters and when fully grown they can be found at 150 and 250 meter depths. Of great commercial and gastronomic value, the red snapper, for the strength and starting power it demonstrates when screwed, always promises the deep sea sport fisherman an arduous struggle during its capture in boat fishing. Its minimum catching measure is 25 cm but we advise to keep only fishes with more then 40 cm long. In all our tours catch & release is always an option!

The best tips for a great Red Snaper fishing day

  • Use the suitable material and if needed we bring at your disposal the chance of renting fishing rods, fishing reels and specific tackle to take full advantage of your boat fishing tour for red snappers;
  • There are several techniques to catch this amazing specie, such as sea bottom fishing with fresh bait-fish like mackerel or sardines or jiging fishing.
  • Using fluorcarbon leaders and lines can make the diference - The red snappers have excellent eyesight and using prime branded fluorcarbon leaders will always result in more fish!
