Targeting Gamefish Red Snapper In Central Florida

Another Paragraph in the Article

Red Snapper are a brilliant Color of pinkish red over their entire body, whitish below; long triangular snout; anal fin sharply pointed; no dark lateral spot.

Snapper are an important commercial fish that is superb on the dinning table. Snapper has a semi-mild white meat that can have a slight seafood taste to the palette. Most anglers catch snapper while bottom fishing with live or dead bait, but they can be caught with an assortment of artificials.

The federal government has closed red snapper fishing in 2010 and is possibly considering a ban on snapper fishing for several years as they consider it overfished. This particular government mandate is not indorsed by Lagooner Fishing Guides or it's staff because we believe that red snapper are not in peril and can be managed effectively with harvest quotas.

Red Snapper are found OFFSHORE on the continental shelf, more plentiful off the panhandle than in south or middle Florida. However since snapper regulations have tightened in the last few years, reds have become more abundant and larger than when they declined in the last few decades.

Remarks

Juveniles occur over sandy or mud bottoms and are often taken in shrimp trawls; adults may live more than 20 years, and attain 35 pounds or more; sexual maturity attained at age 2; spawns June to October; feeds on crustaceans and fish.

Regulations

20" Atlantic Ocean; 16" Gulf of Mexico minimum size, 2 per angler per day.

NOAA Fisheries Service has announced that effective January 4, 2010, all recreational and commercial harvest of red snapper in Atlantic federal waters is prohibited. This interim rule will be effective until June 2, 2010 and could be extended for another 186-day period.

Fishing Forecast

June - 2017 Fishing Forecast

June of 2017 is looking to be a hot summer with hot fishing off of East Central Florida near Cocoa Beach. Orlando visitors should anticipate the warm weather and great fishing that coastal and offshore fishing provides in the warm Atlantic Ocean this time of year. Last year in 2016 we saw many tarpon exceeding 100 pounds caught off the Brevard County beaches along with a good amount of sharks, king mackerel and really big Jack Crevelle that kept things interesting. Looking forward to this year's forecast on the Space Coast remember that the coastal waters along the Atlantic seaboard and Ocean will probably be the most productive fishing during the month of June and as we look in to August the ocean will look to be the most inviting destination for anglers in the heat of the Central Florida Summer.
