    Florida adds 6 new red snapper fishing days Gov. Ron DeSantis, FWC announce dates

    The season for private recreational anglers and state for-hire operations will be open October 12-13, 19-20 and 26-27.

    "Florida is the fishing capital of the world thanks to our pristine natural resources and an abundance of fisheries, including red snapper," DeSantis said. "FWC has shown that this fishery is sustainable, so we are happy to provide these additional recreational fishing days to anglers."

    Private recreational anglers may harvest red snapper in state and federal waters. However, state for-hire operations are limited to fishing for red snapper in Gulf state waters only.

    That’s pathetic, they already got like a 40 day season. And we on the east coast get 5 days. WTH??? There are plenty of ARS out there.

    Trying to find any numbers off of Tampa that might hold red snapper within 20 miles of the pass seems next to impossible. I talked to a party boat operations over there and they are Federally licenced and cannot fish the extension either. They make some 12 hour trips out to the middle grounds but that is Federal Waters. Seems you need to fish up in the panhandle to have a chance on this gummit formula. Now that DeSantis is up in Tallahassee alot maybe that was the idea....................
