Default Snapper limit

It looks like there may be enough pressure put upon the "powers to be" to relax snapper seasons and/or bag limits.

What would your preference be?

Put a slot limit on them. No closed season. We kill to many trying to catch a 16" Snapper. Or just say5 per person , No size limit!:doh Why kill a 12" snapper to release to what? Dolphins!:banghead Wake up Florida!

We usually kill them as bi-catch trying to catch groupers on the shelf. Most of the fish are over 20" too.....

I'd be good with 3/day no closed season and possibly reducing the size limit to 12" to reduce collateral damage when releasing.
