By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on November 28, 2017

The recreational harvest season for snook closes Dec. 1 in Gulf state and federal waters and will remain closed through Feb. 28, 2018, reopening to harvest March 1, 2018. Anglers may continue to catch and release snook during the closed season.

This and other regular season closures are designed to help conserve the species during vulnerable times such as cold weather. Atlantic state and federal waters, including Lake Okeechobee and the Kissimmee River, will close Dec. 15 this year through Jan. 31, 2018, reopening to harvest Feb. 1, 2018.
