NOAA Announces 2016 Gulf of Mexico Red Snapper Season

GULF OF MEXICO RED SNAPPER

ANOTHER SHORT GULF SNAPPER SEASON John Frazier

NOAA has announced the Gulf of Mexico red snapper recreational season for 2016, and it gives private anglers a paltry 9 days to fish for the popular and abundant species in Federal waters. For-hire and charter boats, on the other hand, have been granted a 46-day season in the same waters, for the same fish.

The Federal season for private anglers opens June 1, 2016, at 12:01 a.m. and closes on June 10, 2016, at 12:01 a.m., local time. The for-hire season remains open until July 17, 2016, at 12:01 a.m., local time. The federal-water red snapper bag limit is 2 fish per person per day with a 16-inch minimum total length size limit.
