Default Stingrays

Anyone know what the Regs on Stringrays are and where I can read up on it myself? Not seeing it on the FWC website. Thanks

no size limit. cant keep mantas/devil rays (black and whites with extended "horns" on mouth that channel plankton to them). best we have come up with is your limited to the 100lbs of any species restriction. that kind of sucks when all you can find are cownose for shark bait and have three 45lbers in the cooler for bait. but that isn't really an issue when you have 2 or more people with you.

If your looking to eat them all rays are not the same. I tried to eat a cow ray last year and wasn't impressed. It wasn't bad, but I was hoping that the story was true about tasting like scallops. I think the better tasting meat are the smaller rays you see on the flats.

Really, I always though the restaurants that did pass ray off as scallops would at least catch the rays locally. Where are these cold water skates mainly found then?

its not a common practice. most of the skates come from trawlers after pollock and white fish. the best i had was from alaska.
