Back in April, the decision to extend the Red Snapper season, for what is known as, "The Luckiest Fishing Village" in the world, was granted. The first week of June, just about every boat that went out, came back with beautiful and soon to be, delicious Red Snapper.

The season has been extended through July 14th, which gives everybody an extra 44 days of fishing for this amazing species. The decision to extend the fishing season what made by The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission because of the increase in the population of Red Snapper.

Many area fishermen and women are very happy with the decision because this is one of the most popular choices throughout the year. If you love the taste, this is the time to head to the best seafood and fish restaurants in the area. As the anglers bring in these big, beautiful red fish, they will sell them to many area restaurants, which will be happy to prepare the fish for you to enjoy.

Of course, if you love to fish, you can catch your own, as many do. It's not necessary to go way off the coast in search of a school of Red Snapper, as they are all over the area. Many are heading out during the afternoon and returning well before sunset with their daily limit. This means, you can go out, catch the fish you need for dinner, get back to the dock and still have plenty of time to grill, fry or prepare the fish however you choose.

One of the best ways to prepare Red Snapper is actually a very simple recipe. With a little "Old Bay" seasoning, butter and batter, you can simply batter and fry your fish. Pair them with a few cut and fried potatoes for a great meal or put the fish fillet in between a hoagie bun with a little tartar sauce, lettuce and tomato. Either way, you will be able to enjoy one of the best fish choices found in the Gulf of Mexico.
