Don’t Miss the 2018 Red Snapper Season in the Gulf Shores

beach-vacation-sunset-propertiesRecently, the U.S. Department of Commerce granted Alabama an Exempted Fishing Permit through the National Marine Fisheries Service, allowing the state to extend their yearly red snapper season to 47 days. Starting June 1st, anglers will be able to fish for red snapper in Alabama waters Friday through Sunday until September 2nd. Bag limits remain the same—two per person—and fish must be at least 16 inches long. The extension is a major victory for the state, as officials have been fighting for exclusive control over managing their red snapper season.

Red snapper season is one of the most exciting times along the coast, making it the ideal for a summer beach vacation. Delicious food, events, and plenty of opportunities to fish both intercostally and on open waters ensure that you’ll have challenging and family-friendly activities to enjoy on your beach vacation.
