Default catch and release or no fish

When snapper are not in season are they under a no catch or a catch and release? Is it illegal to target snapper when not in season?

It's not possible to not catch them, don't think anyone would ever give you crap about it, but if it ever happens just say you're grouper or mingo fishing.

If catching them were illegal... we'd all be in jail.

Why target fish that aren't in season? Can't keep them so why bother.

Fun. Sport. Etc

We DO NOT "sport fish" to feed ourselves. I personally go out to my close spots quite often to fly fish for snapper, AJs and others. My box is empty when I get back...... and I could care less

Because fishing is fun

If I fished for the sole purpose of putting meat in my freezer I could do it a hell of a lot cheaper by getting it from the grocery store or the seafood market.

Ummm bc it's called fishing and fishing is fun.

So you wouldn't want to catch a tarpon some day only bc you can't keep it?

Even though I can't keep it, wouldn't anyways, but I'd like a big hammer or tiger. It's not about what you can or cannot keep. It's about having fun.

You'll have a lot more fun if you just fish.

I'm with you. I have no interest in targeting a fish I can't eat. Same concept as sitting in a tree stand with a camera instead of a gun.

Exactly......

If you are only fishing to eat what you catch save yourself the trouble and go to Joe Patti's. I love catching big snapper on light spinning gear and artificials, it's a blast!
