There’ll be more opportunities this summer to catch one of Louisiana’s prized fish - red snapper..

Thanks to an avalanche of protest and criticism over the NOAA’s mismanagement of offshore species in federal waters, Louisiana and four other Gulf states will enjoy an extended open season on red snapper every Friday through Sunday through Sept. 4.

Plus, there will be open holiday red snapper fishing on July 3-4 and on Labor Day.
