Snapper time

 Hey guys (and gals),

Need a little help with targeting Snapper on the 3 mile. As a general rule, is it best being inside, on top or behind the reef?

Been sitting just inside or on the reef in 10-15m with little success so I'm obviously doing something wrong?

I fish more south around cocburn....but have had best luck sitting just behind reef on sand with burley going on incoming tide, approaching high tide on sun down / up. My thinking the burley is being pushed through the reef.

The fish need to be in the area for this to work of coarse. I use to fish on top of the five with occasional fish but many lost rigs. 

 

By no means a proven theroy but has given me some success.
