BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana recreational anglers will be able to target red snapper this fall in state waters starting Friday, Nov. 20.
The state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says the fall season will run seven days a week, with a daily bag and possession limit of two fish per person at a 16-inch minimum total length.
LA Creel estimated that Louisiana’s recreational fisherman landed 993,963 pounds of red snapper through Sept. 8 when Louisiana’s state water red snapper season was closed. Those landings account for 92 percent of the historical average. The new season will allow private anglers to harvest the remaining percentage, 88,823 pounds of red snapper.
