    Following a request from Gov. Rick Scott, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has expanded the recreational red snapper season in Gulf state waters by adding an additional seven days in November. The expanded open season dates will be Nov. 5 and 6; Nov. 11 and 12, which is Veteran’s Day weekend; and Nov. 25, 26 and 27, which is the Thanksgiving holiday. The Nov. 26 date is also a saltwater license-free fishing day. Recreational fishing in Gulf waters adds $7.6 billion annually to Florida’s economy.

    It’s also only the second game of the season for the Indians.

    The Indians, who were denied a chance to play the first two weeks of the season, kicked off the season in style with big plays on both sides of the ball for a 33-6 win over the Apache (0-2).

    In addition to all of the damage and disruption wrought by Hurricane Hermine, last Friday’s high school football slate, including Chiefland’s season opener, was also dampened, as county games were cancelled.

    Aaron Richardson’s Indians are now in the unusual position of playing their opener in the third week of the season – following a bye in the first week due to a cancellation over the summer – as they take the field at C. Doyle McCall Field at Wayne Pridgeon Stadium this Friday against Arlington Country Day of Jacksonville.
