2015 Florida Gulf State Waters Recreational Red Snapper Seasonred snapper season in 2014. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and red snapper fisher folks have a great season. 🙂
I have noticed the red snapper fisherman who live at Hibiscus are already getting ready for the opening.
It is opening on Memorial Day weekend again so please be extra careful out here!
2015 Florida Commission approves 70-day recreational red snapper season in Gulf state waters
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved a 70-day recreational red snapper season for Gulf state waters at the April 16 meeting in Tallahassee. Red snapper is a popular species that has a strong economic impact for many coastal communities throughout Florida.
The 2015 season will start the Saturday before Memorial Day (May 23) and run through July 12, resume for all of Labor Day weekend (Sept. 5-7) and finish with Saturdays and Sundays throughout the rest of September and all of October, with the last day of harvest being Sunday, Nov. 1.
The 2015 Gulf federal waters recreational red snapper season has not been set yet and will be announced later this spring by NOAA Fisheries.
