State weekend-only red snapper season resumes
The bag and possession limit for the state season is three fish per person at a 16-inch minimum total length. A weekend is defined as a Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with the exception of Labor Day when Monday will be considered a weekend as well.
LDWF reminds anglers of the free, required offshore landing permit. The permit is required for all anglers, including anglers not normally required to possess a recreational fishing license, possessing tunas, billfish, swordfish, amberjacks, groupers and snappers (except gray snapper) and hinds.
Although offshore anglers are required to have a permit, at this time they are only required to report catches of yellow fin tuna.
The permit is available at no cost to the public.

LDWF officials encourage fishermen to use caution and their own personal judgment when fishing beyond the three mile boundary that is currently recognized as federal waters, as it is fully expected that federal agents will continue to enforce federal law. Until the time when the US Congress confirms Louisiana’s action, the battle will continue over Louisiana’s state water boundary.
