Anglers can rejoice. The limited shark fishing season at Gulf State Park Pier is expanding.
The previous two Tuesdays were part of a testing phase. Now we’re hearing additional dates are set for July 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 24, 29 and 31.
The hours for those dates will be from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. the following morning.
Also expanding is the number of fishermen allowed on each night. During the testing phase, only 10 were allowed. On the newly announced dates, 15 fishermen will be allowed each night.
