Season reopening Dec. 8-10
Information: Recreational red snapper season will reopen in Atlantic federal waters Dec. 8-10. During this season in Atlantic federal waters, the bag limit is one fish per person, per day, and there is no minimum size limit. The bag limit applies to private and charterboat/headboat vessels (the captain and crew on for-hire vessels may retain the recreational bag limit).
The season was previously open Nov. 3-5 and 10-12 in Atlantic federal waters. The season was extended due to inclement weather during the previously open dates and that the catch limit had not been met yet.
In Atlantic state waters, red snapper is open year-round and the size limit is 20 inches total length. If you harvest a red snapper under 20 inches while fishing in Atlantic federal waters, you must motor through Atlantic state waters with your gear stowed.
