Snapper Season Update from Capt. Ben Fairey

A message from the Capt:

Red snapper season is almost halfway over. The average size that we are catching is amazing! I have a few half days still open and a couple of full days. Do not miss out on 2013 red snapper fishing!!! I have to say this; in my 40 plus years as a professional fishermen, I have never seen red snapper fishing this good! Even as painful as short seasons and strict bag limits have been you can’t deny the results? Thank you NMFS! Now since we have rebuilt the red snapper stock together let’s work on a new modern flexible, accountable FMP? — Capt. Ben Fairey
