The 2016 recreational red snapper season in Gulf of Mexico state waters closes July 11, with the last day of harvest being July 10. The season will reopen Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in September and October, and on Labor Day.

This season will help maintain fishing opportunities for recreational anglers in state waters and provide additional fall weekend fishing days.

The private recreational angler red snapper season in Gulf federal waters ran June 1-9 and was extended two days due to Tropical Storm Colin, closing June 12. The federally-permitted charter boat and head ­boat season for federal waters will run June 1-July 16 (closing July 17).
