Default Gigging Game Fish While Flounder Gigging

Is it legal to gig a red or other type of game fish while wading with lights for flounder? The opportunity has arose on multiple occasions and was curious if it is ok to gig a red on a dock or something like that.

Terry is right. Same for both. Also, if you are commercial, and you have over the recreational limit of flounder, you are not allowed to have any game fish (Reds and/or Specs) on board. Period. I know this from experience. Had 10 flounder and one red fish on board, got checked, and was told that if I had one more flounder, I would have gotten a big ticket. I read the rules over and over. they are kinda confusing. Alabama: you CAN gig crabs, as long as they are 5 inches.

Put a crab net on the other end of your gigg pole and you are set. The chicken wire nets is what i've used and works great.

I asked Montgomery. You can gig a legal crab. I got a return call, and saved it as voice mail. Im like terry, I will dip them up. People that go with me sometimes want to stab one. So I checked.

Whoa Bobby, you've been working on that boat way too many hours. This makes absolutely no sense or did I miss something.
