The recreational red snapper season in Gulf state waters will remain open Nov. 5-6, 11-12 (Veteran’s Day holiday), and 25-27, 2016 (Thanksgiving weekend and Nov. 26 is also a saltwater license-free fishing day).

These additional days were added to the season to offset the effects of Hurricane Hermine.
The daily bag limit is two fish per person within the 10-snapper aggregate bag limit. The minimum size limit is 16 inches total length. The season is not open in Gulf federal waters.
