Since we had less than a month of amberjack season in federal waters in 2018, has there been any indication of whether they will open it again at some point this year? There's nothing on NOAA's fisheries website, so I'm wondering if anyone has heard rumors about possible re-opening and a normal season based on a quota as in previous years.

I heard August 1 but put that down as a rumor. Most likely either speculation or hope.

I hope the rumor is true, but I'm not counting on it either.

It's a real shame, the main draw for me on the 24 and 30 hr trips out of Port A during the winter has always been the amberjack, with blackfin tuna as the bonus. Without the amberjack in the picture, I'm not all that motivated to spend the money and time just on blackfin.
