Anglers who headed offshore during the first days of the red snapper season in federal waters battled rough seas, while others stayed home.

As a result, fishermen will get two extra days to head out.

NOAA Fisheries responded to requests the agency received from concerned anglers, and is extending the red snapper recreational fishing season for private anglers in the Gulf of Mexico due to impacts of Tropical Storm Colin. The private angler component’s federal-water fishing season was scheduled to close at 12:01 a.m. (local time) Friday June 10. NOAA Fisheries is extending the federal season for two additional days; the private angler red snapper federal season will close at 12:01 a.m. (local time) Sunday, June 12.
