The arrival of the Red Snapper Season is a highly anticipated time of year for fishing enthusiasts and families. At Fisherman’s Wharf, we are excited to offer charters and tournaments for these sought-after fish. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced angler, the thrill of catching these hard-pulling yet delicious fish is a must-try activity for anyone visiting Port Aransas this summer. Before heading out on your adventure, you must know a few rules and regulations to ensure your trip is as enjoyable as possible.

Understanding Texas Red Snapper Season Dates and Limits

Knowing the difference between fishing in state and federal waters is essential. The first nine nautical miles from the shore are classified as state waters, while anything beyond that is considered federal waters. If you’re planning to charter a fishing boat and head out to the deep sea, you need to familiarize yourself with the season dates and limits for federal waters.

Fishing in federal waters is a unique experience where you have the opportunity to battle a giant Red Snapper. It may take some time, but it’s truly incredible. In addition to this, depending on your permit and the season, many other fish are available. This will be a memorable experience for you and your family.

The 2023 Texas Red Snapper season in federal waters is open starting June 1 at 12:01.
