The dates have been announced for Florida’s Gulf red snapper season this summer and it’s possible there could be a fall reopening later this year.
The season will kick off June 4 and run through July 28.
“This will be the longest summer season anglers will have since the FWC started setting seasons for fishing in the Gulf state and federal waters off Florida,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a news release. “The State is proud to provide continued access and opportunities for Florida families to enjoy the Fishing Capital of the World.”
The season is open to those fishing for red snapper from private recreational vessels in Gulf state and federal waters and those fishing from charter vessels that do not have a federal reef fish permit and are limited to fishing in state waters only.
“Anglers across the state look forward to red snapper season each year,” Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Chairman Rodney Barreto said in a news release. “Our agency looks forward to providing 55 days of red snapper opportunities in Gulf state and federal waters.”
