I heard snapper was open for Labor Day weekend. Can anyone confirm ? State or fed water?

Maybe for Alabama it is, so I'd assume only in State waters. Don't think Fla is going to open it or not. Most likely not tho.

* I think I heard on the news that they "were" or was "considering" it? Can't find anything concrete yes/no online on it.

On a side note.......Don't forget that your Alabama fishing license is only good for Saturday and not Sunday. Bet they get a lot of folks on that one.

Yes, like stated above, Alabama added two more days.

Maybe Florida should start counting snapper instead of licenses.

Oh, So you have to renew to fish the last extra day. I would have been stumped on that. I have only fished Florida and our license expires 365 days from purchase. I buy it every year on my Birthday so I do not forget.

Sorry 'bout that confusion LY-zer. Alabama licenses are good for 365 days also, just that the 365 starts Sept 1 year after year. Kind of sucks but at least you remember when to buy your license every year and you can put everything from hunting, fishing, ducks....on the same license

Money grab by the state of Alabama. I get pissed every August 31. We used to run for one year from date of purchase, but the greedy shits in Montgomery wanted more.

We just had a gas tax rammed down our throats for bridges and infrastructure and now they want to build a billion dollar bridge in Mobile and put a $6 one way toll on it.

Seems to me it's still one year from the date of purchase, they just tell you when you have to purchase it.
