Florida Red Snapper Season Has Been Extended

The recreational Gulf red snapper season in Florida has been extended by 17 days, according to an announcement by Governor Ron DeSantis. 

The extension includes every Friday through Sunday in September, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving Day, making the 2023 season a total of 87 days. This is the longest combined season since the state took over the management of red snapper. 

The extended season applies to those fishing from private recreational vessels in state and federal waters in the Gulf, as well as charter vessels without a federal reef fish permit limited to fishing in state waters. The fall season now includes every Friday-Sunday throughout September, October, and November, as well as Labor Day and Thanksgiving Day.

Here are the full dates for the remainder of 2023:

  • September 1–4 (Friday–Monday of Labor Day Weekend)
  • September 8–10
  • September 15–17
  • September 22–24
