Red Snapper Fishing Season

The 2016 recreational red snapper season in the Gulf opened on May 28th with fishing every day through July 10 in “state waters”.  After a short break, it will re-open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in September and October. Red snapper may also be bagged on Labor Day.

A federally-permitted charter boat and season for federal waters is set for June 1-July 16.  And, one of the best charter captains in the Panama City Beach area is Butch Cardenas on the SwordaCrazy 35 foot Seahunter, triple 300 hp outboard, fishing machine.

Ricky Lee Jones just returned from a trip with a couple of his Tennessee real estate clients.  Check out their group photo!!  Unfortunately, the 25 ½ pound lunker was caught on the same boat on the same day, but 4 hours later on the next charter trip.

If you would like to come down and fish for red snapper or shop for the best vacation property real estate on the Gulf Coast, give Ricky Lee a call today at 850.290.2901.
