Default Alabama State Waters Open for Red Snapper and Triggerfish in July

Alabama State Waters Open for Red Snapper and Triggerfish in July
The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ Marine Resources Division (MRD) announced Thursday that Alabama’s waters will open for the recreational harvest of red snapper and gray triggerfish from July 1-31, 2015. Alabama state waters will also be open for red snapper harvest during the federal season June 1-10, 2015. The daily bag limit will be two red snapper per person and two gray triggerfish per person. The minimum size for red snapper will be 16 inches total length, and the minimum size for gray triggerfish will be 14-inch fork length. Federal waters remain closed to private recreational anglers for red snapper and gray triggerfish harvest during the July season.
“The federal red snapper season this year will only be 10 days. MRD biologists have assessed the resource in our waters, and we feel that there will still be enough red snapper and triggerfish in Alabama waters to open an additional season to give our citizens the ability to catch more red snapper and triggerfish this year,” said Chris Blankenship, Director of the Marine Resources Division.

Now all we need is it to pass the Federal govt. for the extended State water to be recognized to 9 miles

The deputized federal officers as they like to call them are gonna be out messing with everyone during the state season. That is a garuantee. Because of the 3-9 mile confusion. Last year they were nice and professional(the ones we delt with). Not so much from stories of other anglers from last year. They were putting the word out that they do not recognize the 9 mile alabama said distance that the state officers do recognize. It was the coast guard that I delt with last year at the Allen reef during alabama state season.
I knew better, I recognized the 3 mile because I knew we would have to deal with them once offshore. We were trolling for kings and whatever else was hungry , so we got the polite , anglers following the rules speech on how the federal officers will not recognize the 9 mile distance.
One story I do remember on the forum last year was where a alabama state marine resources boat stopped someone, but, they had a federal (deputized) officer; hint,hint, that was doing a (riding along), writing citations for exactly what the alabama governor said would be recognized by the Alabama state marine officers. I see that as a trick. Oh well, I just wanted to pass on my experience and some what opinion of what's in store for everyone.
Mood, hours on shift, and number of tickets already given out that shift, and many other things will come in to alabama's state season confusion of officers you will encounter offshore .
As they say, "fish at your own risk" if your observing the 9 mile line.
3 miles is all we get if you want to keep the famous "Red Snapper" in the Alabama state season, and not have to deal with any crap from any one offshore.
3 miles. 25-30 feet of water, is all you get to be completely safe from a ticket.
Good luck everyone.

Yep, three miles is it, ARS not worth the ticket. Sate boys will not write out to 9 miles and will not let the feds write if on board as the story about that was proved untrue last year, but again ARS are not worth the ache. Me, I would like to hear of lots of boats fishing for ARS but putting them back, hopefully just to keep the feds busy checking so others braver than I can catch and keep. Little civil disobedience goes a long way.
