Are charter boats governed by the commercial or recreational rules of the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Council?

That's not the case when it comes to Grouper this year. Charter boats can't have a Gag on board in Federal or State waters.

Only Charter boats who hold Federal Permits. Charter boats without federal permits can keep gags in state water
