Since January of 2010, the harvest of red snapper, one of the Gulf Coast‘s most delicious game fish, has been off-limits to anglers. But that will change for two weekends this September, when officials have decided that anglers will be able to target and keep the delectable fish.
In the second and third weekends of September, anglers will be able to keep one fish of any size per day. The heavily regulated and highly controversial fish appears to be making a comeback.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, commercial fishermen will have a seven day season but will be limited to 50 pounds of fish. It’s just about the shortest fishing season we’ve ever heard of, but it’s better than nothing. – Rick Bach
