As you probably heard, the 2017 Federal Gulf red snapper season is a measly 3 days…

Knowing that you only have three days of red snapper fishing this year, you’d be crazy not to be as prepared as possible to catch your limit of red snapper in that short period of time.

That’s why we teamed up with offshore expert Capt. Dylan Hubbard from famous Hubbard’s Marina so he could share some of his best tips on catching red snapper.

Thanks for the tips on how to catch Red Snapper. We only have a 19 ft Key West, so I don’t see us going out to a hundred plus feet of water. Does anyone know if we might find them around the Edisto 60. It is an artificial reef about 15 miles off shore. We catch Cobia there in the spring.
