The 2019 Red Snapper Season has been released by the FWC. Our charters can expect Snapper trips from June 11, 2019 through July 12, 2019. There is the possibility of Snapper Season reopening in the fall, but only if quota is available. See the link here from the FWC website.
Red Snapper are managed differently between the Gulf waters and Atlantic waters. Panhandle Fishing Charters only fishes inshore state waters, which is within the first 9 nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico. Red Snapper can only be harvested at 16″ or larger and only two per person with ten per party being the total bag limit. Unfortunately, charter captains and crew do not count towards your parties total bag. The FWC also requires circle hooks and dehooking to be used in Gulf state waters.
