Fish for Red Snapper in November
The 2016 recreational fishing season for red snapper is open in Florida state waters (only) on select days in November.  In November, fishing for red snapper is open November 5 and 6 (Saturday and Sunday), November 11 and 12 (Friday and Saturday; Veterans’ Day Weekend) and November 25, 26 and 27 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday; Thanksgiving Weekend).  November 26 (Saturday) also is a saltwater license-free fishing day in Florida; you can fish in saltwater without a license that day (only).

Florida state waters are from shore to 9 nautical miles in the Gulf. Complete information, including gear requirements, size and harvest limits, can be found at:  

Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show
The Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show is November 11 and 12 at NAS Pensacola.  This final show of the year will feature high-flying performances on both Friday and Saturday, with a spectacular Friday night air show and fireworks display.  This two-day event celebrates not only Veterans’ Day weekend, but also the 70th Anniversary of the Blue Angels team, and should be a “don’t miss” event. 

You can view most of the Air Show events from your boat by anchoring at Admirals Island (aka “Sand Island”) or at Fort McRee.  And, there will be less “traffic” than going by land.  Combine a great boat outing with lunch or dinner at Sunset Grille.

If you go by land, you must enter through the West Gate (Blue Angel Parkway).  The gate opens at 8:00 a.m. both days.
