We got an interesting update from the feds today regarding Red Snapper Season. It seems they have changed the wording in regards to the date that we are allowed to leave the dock if our intended catch is Red Snapper. Since the season technically begins on 12:01AM on June 1, we are not allowed to leave the dock until 12:01am to head for the fishing grounds.
Here is what we received from the national Marine Fisheries yesterday-
•For the purpose of the possession limit, the entire trip duration must coincide with an open fishing season for the applicable species.
For example: if anglers on a federal for-hire vessel intend to retain the possession limit of red snapper, which has an open season beginning on June 1, the vessel cannot depart before 12:01 AM on June 1.
At this time we are informing you that we are forced to turn this trip into a 2 day trip, by changing the departure of the Red Snapper Opening to June 1 2021 at 12:01AM . We will be returning at noon on June 3 2021.
