PORT MANSFIELD – Red snapper season will be twice as long this year compared to last year.

The changes are only in federal waters. State waters will remain open year-round for red snapper.

This means fishermen will be able to fish in federal waters for 82 days beginning on June 1. 

The bag and size limits remain the same:

  • Federal waters: 2 fish per person per day with a 16-inch minimum
  • State waters: 4 fish per person per day with a 15-inch minimum
