Through July 22, Louisiana’s recreational anglers have harvested slightly more than 530,000 pounds of red snapper — or 71 percent of the state’s annual private recreational allocation of 743,000 pounds.

That means the current weekends-only season will continue to run until recreational landings approach the allocation total — so about 213,000 pounds remain to be harvested.

A landings estimate graph from the LDWF shows the weekends-only season ending sometime in the first half of September, based on catch rates so far in 2018.
