Federal Red Snapper Season is almost here! Fisherman’s Wharf is excited to kick off charters and tournaments for these sought-after fish. Beginners and experts alike will want to try their hand at catching these hard-pulling yet delicious fish at least once this summer season. Before heading out on the water, there are a few rules you need to know to ensure that your trip is as enjoyable as possible.

Texas Red Snapper Season Dates and Limits

There is a difference between fishing in state and federal waters. The first nine nautical miles from shore count as state waters. After that, you go into federal waters. If you want to charter a fishing boat and go deep-sea fishing, you will also need to know the season dates and limits for the federal waters.

The experience of deep-sea fishing in federal water is a lot more unique and you can battle one of the giant Red Snapper. It creates an experience that you and the family will never forget. It might take some time and effort to catch these big boys, but it is truly incredible. In addition to this, you have many other options of fish available in the federal waters, depending on your permit and the season, of course. 

For the federal season, the waters are open from June 1 at 12:01 am until August 19 at 12:01 am. With the season being a lot longer than in 2021, it allows you to fish federal waters, where the larger fish are, for longer. 

What Makes Red Snapper Fishing Special? 

There are many different reasons why people enjoy fishing for Red Snapper. The first reason is that Red Snappers are delicious. Because they are delicious, they are also available in many high-end restaurants, but to experience the taste of the freshest Red Snapper possible, you need to catch them yourself. 

Catching Red Snapper is also pretty straightforward. The technique is easily taught, so families with kids and inexperienced beginners will be able to catch these beauties. The only thing you need is to charter a great fishing boat with a great crew that can put you in the best spots to fish, like at Fisherman’s Wharf, where we have the fastest and most stable boats in town, as well as some of the best captains and crew in the business.
