That is not official yet. The Florida season will be decided after the series of 5 workshops that will take place the week of March 9. The first one will be here in Pensacola on March 9. Time and location TBA
There is a post on THT stating June 1st for federal waters with 33 days for the for hire group or until their quota is met. Many feel the short rec season is the Crabtree way for the feds to punish the states and I have no reason to doubt the assumption. I hope the states do a good job of managing their waters so they can stay non compliant through the years. I also hope someone or group with more money than I files for an injunction to stop all snapper fishing before the season starts, then with will get the attention of the CFH and commercial guys.
