You can catch them in the bay right now at 30 feet or less. Any structure in the gulf should have them but you can't keep them any more :-(

Probably only around 30 when you factor in weather and sea conditions.

Yep. I got to go 6-7 times. It sucks. Anyone heard about maybe doing a fall weekend snapper season like last year? The black/mangrove are still out there in pretty good numbers and gag will be back in soon I think.

Feds: http://www.gulfcouncil.org/news_reso...LTR06-2011.pdf

The recreational red snapper season, which is technically June 1 - September 30,
has consistently closed early since it was established. Suspending the September 30
recreational red snapper closure date will give the Regional Administrator more latitude
to open a recreational fall season if/when the quota is not met during the regular
season.

And Florida: http://myfwc.com/media/1450541/HotSheet_JULY2011.pdf

Commissioners also granted approval to adopt consistent fall harvest season dates, should NOAA Fisheries Service implement an additional recreational red snapper harvest season later this year.

So I guess we wait and see. Unless someone knows if we met the quota. I am assuming we did since snapper are everywhere and everyone thati know of got their limit every time they went out. How do they calculate tonnage of fish harvested? Do they estimate number of licences purchased? Is there some snapper czar that looks into a crystal ball and magically creates a number? Guess I'll know when someone on the forum announces it.
