Default Alabama Openings?

Does anyone have any new info on Alabama State waters? I had read something that they were very close to reopening state waters again to catch and keep rather that catch and release only. Anyone able to confirm or deny? Thanks

According to an article in the Tuscaloosa News, the State is waiting for test results to confirm that it is OK and they will immediately open the waters. A State official was quoted as saying that he expects the tests to pass and if it were up to him he would open the waters now.

Expected to de done soon.

State Conservation Commissioner Barnett Lawley said state waters are free of oil, and officials are awaiting test results that will determine whether federal officials will allow fishing to resume around Dauphin Island and the Mississippi Sound, perhaps as soon as this week.
“There's no sheen, no nothing,” Lawley said. “If it's up to me, we'd be open right now.”
