ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Snook lovers, get ready.

The recreational snook fishing season in Florida starts on Saturday and it will last through the end of May.

Sportsmen can fish for the snook off the Atlantic coast and Lake Okeechobee and the Kissimmee River.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said Monday that anglers will be allowed to keep one snook per day. But it can’t be less than 28 inches or more than 32 inches in length.

A permit is required to keep the snook, as well as a saltwater fishing license.

Only hooks and line gear will be allowed for harvesting snook.

In March, snook harvesting will be allowed off the Gulf of Mexico, Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys.
