So, I have been chasing snappers in the bay and have caught a lot of small snappers, which I thought were juvenile red snappers....all with a single dark spot back on them....so are theses lane snappers? Anyone know? Thanks in advance for any info!
The spot on the upper back portion just means it's a juvenile, so young red snappers will have those. Lanes will have yellow stripes and yellow on the bases of the pectorals. You're probably just getting juvenile red snappers, which are numerous in the bay.
