Default Red Snapper caught on bottom @ 374 ft

Has anyone ever heard of snapper @ this depth? We thought it was a Tile fish coming up as he shook his head the whole way up. We wound up with a small Snowy & 1 real nice Yellow Edge. I will try to post photo. John

John, believe it or not we have caught them in over 600 ft. I truly believe with the over abundance of the red snapper they are forced to move off shore to those depths for either food source or habitat .

Wow, I always thought 250 ft was their limit. Thanks for the reply. John

OK, I'm lost... What does Grouper have to do with Snapper at 374'. But that is some nice Yellowedge... mmmmmmmmmm. I thought that it was very common to find them in 300+' of water.

Biggest red snapper caught aboard my boat came out of 325 ft. No common, but a few stray there. I buy into the thought that there are so many in the shallows they are getting pushed offshore.
