The Red Snapper fishing season is nearly upon us! Pensacola is featured as one of the best places in the country to experience the 2022 Red Snapper opener.

Man Caught Red Snapper Fish

Choosing where to chase Red Snapper in the Gulf is near impossible, so FishingBooker, the world’s leading platform for booking fishing trips, made a list of the premier locales for 2022. The destinations were chosen based on the excellent fishing they offer, accessibility, as well as the number of professional fishing guides, and Pensacola is in the top 5!

What puts Pensacola on the list?

Pensacola is famous for its fantastic Red Snapper action. The main reason is the large number of artificial reefs that attract all kinds of bottom dwellers. Red Snapper is the most prominent catch on offshore bottom fishing charters, where you can easily hook into a twenty-pounder. The beauty of this fishery is that the waters get deep very quickly, so you can get a Snapper even in Pensacola Bay.

Who else made the list?

Here’s a complete list of featured destinations:

  • Tampa, Cedar Key & Fort Walton Beach, FL
  • Dauphin Island, AL
  • Biloxi, MS
  • Venice & Grand Isle, LA
  • Galveston, Freeport & Port Mansfield, TX
