The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission set the season for the “popular and economically important 2018 Gulf red snapper” from June 11 through July 12, with a possible fall reopening if quota is available.

This season will apply to those fishing from private recreational vessels in state and federal waters. It will also apply to charter vessels without a federal reef fish permit and are limited to fishing in state waters only, according to the FWC.

Anglers fishing for Gulf red snapper from private vessels must get the Gulf Reef Fish Angler designation on their license.

For-hire operations that do not have a federal reef fish permit and are limited to state waters only for red snapper fishing must get the State Gulf Reef Fish Charter designation on their license.

The FWC is encouraging anglers to share real-time catch data with the organization by downloading and using the iAngler Gulf Red Snapper app for private anglers or the iAngler Gulf Red Snapper Charter app for charter operators.
