Vermilion Snapper prefer flat areas on the tops and around the bases of the snapper banks. They are often found in concert with red and other snappers around structures in the Gulf. Best baits is fresh squid, although they will also eat crab, shrimp, or other small fish. Fish close to the bottom offshore near rigs and artificial reefs.
