Default New season closures, size limits and bag limits--

They are a necessary pain in the butt but they also offer an opportunity.

Most folks get in a rut. They find a technique that works and always do it the same way. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," right? Why not do a little experimenting after you catch your legal limit? You are already out there so experimenting won't cost much and you might come up with something that is effective and more fun than doing it the way you've always done it.

Something that many folks have never tried is dropping PJs (Pompano Jigs) on light tackle. I've often caught another species or two by dropping PJs and whipping them up 10-20 feet or so.

Most folks don't take shrimp offshore in the summer time. You will definitely catch a few species that seldom bite cut bait or live minnows.

I've caught both White Marlin and Sailfish on purple worms. Big Flukes catch just about anything that swims.

Try night fishing and fish some of the larger, high profile, artificial reefs. Anchor up current of the reef, chum and catch bigger Mangrove (black) Snapper than you usually see in daylight.

Drift in the bay with a drop shot type rig and catch a bunch of under utilized species. Sand Perch (Squirrel Fish) Blowfish, are great eating.

Let's face it, fish aren't rocket scientists although Docksnappers sometime appear to be.
