Any chance red snapper season will be extended

With the weather being so crummy June 1-3, is there any talk of extending or adding a few days to snapper season?

if i'm reading the article correctly, if we get a 27 day weekend only federal snapper season, the state season out to 9 miles will be closed monday through friday?

Yes, Gulf Commission will only agree to federal season extension if we give up the state specific season. So, no extra allocation is being awarded. They are just allocating basically what would be caught in state waters during the state season to a 27 day weekends only federal season. Some would call it a compromise.
