LDWF would like to remind charter vessels and headboats (for-hire sector) that July 14th is the last day of the federal red snapper season.

NOAA Fisheries made the decision to split the recreational red snapper quota into two distinct components – private anglers and charter vessels and headboats (for-hire).  Each component has its own quota allocations based upon NOAA’s catch target figures. Private anglers had a 10-day federal season that closed on June 10, and charter vessels/headboats have a 45-day federal season, closing at the end of day July 14, 2015.
