The 2020 Florida snook season in Atlantic waters closes Dec. 15 and will remain closed through Jan. 31, 2021.
“Anglers may continue to catch and release snook during the closed season,” the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) said in a statement.
Snook season to harvest will reopen on Feb. 1, 2021.
Season closures are designed to help protect snook during vulnerable times such as cold weather.
Similar measures are in place for red drum and spotted seatrout.
