FINALLY... American Red Snapper & Gag Groupe season opens

June 1, 2021, the first Florida Fisherman ll, Flying HUB, American Red Snapper/Gag Grouper trip of the season.
The 2021 red snapper fishing season for vessels with federal for-hire reef fish permits is 63 days in federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf).
  • The season for federally permitted for-hire vessels will begin at 12:01 a.m., local time, on June 1, 2021, and will close at 12:01 a.m., local time, on August 3, 2021.
  • Gag Grouper seasons runs from June 1 until December 31.

2020 was a fantastic year for both American Red Snapper and Gag Grouper:



The Florida Fisherman ll 39/44 hour trips stuffed-the-boxes on virtually every trip. The Flying HUB is so fast it can fish the same areas the Florida fishes on a 12 hour 'EXTREME' trip.

Wishing everyone will stuff-the boxes.

Please share your monster catches.
