Louisiana Modifies 2013 Recreational Red Snapper Season

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries announced a change in the recreational red snapper season and bag limits, to mirror the season set in federal waters by NOAA last week.

State Red Snapper Season

•    The state recreational red snapper season first opened March 23, 2013, on weekends only, with a recreational bag limit of 3 fish per person per day at a 16-inch minimum

•    Beginning June 1 through June 24, the state red snapper season will be open seven days a week, with a daily bag limit of two fish per person at a 16-inch minimum length

•    On June 25, the season will revert back to weekends only through September 30

•    A weekend is defined as Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with the exception of Memorial Day and Labor Day, when Monday will be classified as a weekend day as well
The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission will discuss the red snapper season modifications at its June 2013 meeting.
