You heard that right! Red Snapper season has been extended and is now the longest it has been extended since 2013. The U.S. Department of Commerce announced an expanded 39 day recreational Red Snapper season for private private anglers fishing in Gulf federal waters. The season will start Friday, June 16, and go through Monday, September 4th; Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Also included will be Monday and Tuesday July 3 and 4, and Monday, September 4.
Keep in mind that there are certain guidelines that you have to follow when fishing Red Snapper. The minimum size limit is 16″ TL. The reason that this is the size limit is because one 24-inch female Red Snapper can produce as many eggs as 212 17-inch female Red Snapper. So the more larger and older Red snapper we have out in the wild, the more Red Snapper we can catch and maximize the number of younger fish coming into the fishery.
This is really great news being able to fish more than just the 3 days of June 1-3. We can now fish every weekend up to September 4 and take advantage of this great opportunity. There is a limit to how many you can catch a day but this means that you can fish for more Red Snapper over a span of a few months! Let’s get out there and catch Red Snapper.

Do you ever wonder what to expect on an inshore fishing trip with Flat Out Fishing Charter? Sometimes we grab the largest fish on the smallest rod. After an hour and 15 minute fight with this tarpon, we had to cut him loose.
Had an awesome fishing trip with Capt. Tyler! He put us on fish all day! My arms are like jello from reeling in the fish!!! Will definitely be back next year!!

The offshore bite on our Pensacola fishing charters has been phenomenal. We have been boating plenty of amberjacks, cobia, black snapper, and king mackerel lately. The near-shore reefs are holding plenty of reef fish so we are not having to go very far to fill the fish box. The inshore bite on our Pensacola fishing charters and our Navarre fishing charters has been great as well. The flats are loaded with plenty of speckled trout and redfish, and the flounder are moving back into the pass in good numbers. Red snapper season is right around the corner and spots are filling up fast so if you would like to book one of our Pensacola fishing charters to load the box with snapper, amberjacks, or other reef fish be sure to call, email, or book online as soon as possible.
The 2015 Red Snapper season has been announced. It will run from May 23rd to July 12th and reopen on the weekends in September, October, and November 1st. The Red Snapper season in the Gulf is as healthy as its ever been. The most common trip is the 5 hour offshore trip but more time can be added for the angler who would like to target other species after getting their limit of red snapper. The inshore trips also have the possibility of producing some nice sized snapper however not as big or as many as the offshore trip. These dates will likely fill fast so if you want to book a red snapper trip on a Pensacola fishing charter or a Navarre fishing charter give us a call or email.
Now that the warmer weather is approaching so are some huge sharks. As the water temperature continues to rise so does a huge shark migration begin. These sharks will begin to live around inshore and nearshore wrecks on Pensacola Beach as well cruising the channels and the shallows in search of their next meal. Shark fishing can be very fun and entertaining especially to those who are watching their friend or loved one battle the shark of a lifetime. Most of these trips are catch and release but under some circumstances we will harvest the shark. We have a lot to offer on our Pensacola fishing charters so if you are interested in catching a shark bigger than you are give us a call. Here is a picture of Tim with a big Bull Shark we caught In Early April this year.
