Fishermen, start your engines! NOAA has just announced when Red Snapper season will officially start in federal waters, and my tackle box is pretty excited about it.

Red Snapper season for Gulf of Mexico will begin June 1st running through June 10th closing at midnight, and charter vessels/headboats will have a 45-day federal season, closing on July 15, 2015.

The limit is set at two fish per person, at a 16-inch minimum total length.

The current recreational red snapper season is already in full swing and will last until after the federal season ends.
