2018 Fishing Seasons

What’s in season and when during 2018

What’s in season and when during 2018Here are my best guesses for the 2018 fishing season. Nothing is locked in place yet except the opening of Red Snapper on June 1st. The others species should be official in a month or two after the states announce their state water seasons.

Triggerfish

Open in March and April, then close for the year

Scamp – Red Grouper

The shallow water grouper complex reopens on April 1st and should stay open through the end of the year.

Amberjack

Amberjack is also currently open from May 1st to 31st and then will close, with a reopening August 1 to October 31, 2018.

Red Snapper

On June 1 Red Snapper will open. The closure date has not been established yet but based on the two previous years it will be mid July.

Gag Grouper

The gag is the only species that will remain closed due to harvest until June 1 and will be open through the end of the year.

Deepwater Groupers

Yellowedge Grouper, Snowy Grouper, longtail sea bass, golden tilefish are open all year

Offshore Species

All offshore species such as Yellowfin, Blackfin Tuna, Dolphin, Wahoo, and Marlin are in season all year.
