Louisiana first of Gulf states to extend Red Snapper season
Red snapper may never be within our reach here in West Central Florida. But some states are standing tall.
This is a never-ending story about the federal government limiting our access to OUR fish based on misleading computer models. The models are flawed fatally and the fish they are attempting to save from recreational fisherfolks are being harvested by commercials and are plentiful.
The problem we have here on the West Central coast is that we have to travel into federal waters to catch the fish and they're not in our shallow state waters. It's different in other areas of Florida, but without relief from the globalists we may never have realistic seasons here.
From US News and the AP:
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — As officials seek full recovery of the once disastrously depleted red snapper population in the Gulf of Mexico, Gulf states are considering a proposed compromise on a contentious three-day federal red snapper season for recreational anglers. Louisiana and Alabama officials say the Commerce Department has told them that if the Gulf states close state waters to recreational redfish anglers on weekdays at least through Sept. 4, a weekends-only federal season could start as early as June 17.
