FWC sets dates for fall red snapper season

It’s official. There will be a fall red snapper season for private recreational anglers and state for-hire operations in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will allow fishing for red snapper to take place Oct. 17-18, Oct. 24-25 and Oct. 31-Nov. 1.

Anglers will be allowed to fish for red snapper in state and federal waters during those weekends.

A 45-day continuous season took place this summer, and that season was longer than the previous two.

The fall season in 2019 lasted eight days. Six additional days were added in the fall this year as the quota of just over 1.9 million pounds has yet to be exceeded.
