Pargo

Pargo is a long thin mullet snapper that often results in large schools and can sometimes be seen boiling in the bait to the surface. Often easily attack baits and poppers cast nearby. They are strong energetic fighters. Pargo is best targeted when lots of small baitfish are around. They are often caught on the surface, especially near piers and wharves while popper fishing for mackerel. Once hooked they will put up a strong fight with some spectacular aerial displays. It is common to catch them in large schools, unlike snappers that are often solitary. The best baits are fresh pilchards, mullet fillets, and strips of fish flesh. They can be caught with lures but best to use well-weighted, undressed lures. Pargo is an excellent eating snapper that has firm white meat similar to other snappers. The Queensland record is 16 kg (35 lbs). The usual size of this snapper is between 1 kilo - 10kg.
