The Coast Guard would like to remind all recreational anglers that the Florida recreational Red Snapper season is open from April 15 - October 31 only in Florida state waters (those waters extending from the coastline out to 9 miles).
The federal Red Snapper season is currently closed. Red Snapper may not be possessed while a vessel is in federal waters, regardless of where the fish were caught, during a closed season.
The federal season is open from June 1 - August 5 for those waters extending from 9 miles to 200 miles offshore. This difference in seasons creates the potential for the illegal possession of Red Snapper in federal waters.
Anglers enjoying the open season in Florida waters are reminded that Red Snapper must be 16 inches in total length. Bag limits are two per angler, excluding charter captain and crew.
Starting on June 1st, 2008, each vessel engaged in reef fishing will be required to possess onboard and use a venting tool, a de-hooker, and non-corrosive circle hooks.
