Default FWC ( Paradise )

Would just like to know why the FWC had two boats & 3 officers per boat spend half the day out at Paradise checking every boat out there ? Came over and checked us and had to bring in my fly line so they wouldn't run over it . I know they were just doing there job but come on weaving in & out of about 20 to 30 boats was just a little too much . By the way we were all legal . No big snapper were caught by us average weight 5 to 7 lbs but we did catch our limit . The cost per lbs was about 50 dollars but had a GREAT TIME !

It is their job, I have no problem with them checking anytime...their presence may keep people honest.

Not trying to be smart, but why don't you just call their office and find out why? Obviously you are not going to get an answer from them here. I saw them running around in the gulf and also thought it was unusual, but definately did not have a problem with it. Keeps everyone on their toes

Their presence might have stopped maybe that one or two fisherman from being dishonest. I personally rather see them out on the water then sitting at the marina's checking your boat out while you’re trying to clean up and there are other boats waiting to recover but cant because FWC is tying up the docks. Either way I dont think we will fully understand FWC ways of thinking. Stay safe out there!

We were anchored and dead sticking some baits Saturday afternoon when FWC idled by but didn't stop. He did pause and checked a boat that was just past us.
They have a challenging job to do, and as long as they conduct themselves in a professional manner, I have no problem with it.

Bahaha, I dont either but, that seems to be the point of breakdown in most cases!

We were fully checked for everything at the Paradise Hole. First one boat came over and saw that I had my misters on built by www.mistersunlimited.com. It was hilarious..Both officers boarded my boat and the other boat came over and tied up. We had a blast talking to them and they were just as friendly as anyone could be. They hung out for a bit and cooled off and mentioned that at the end of every year they make suggestions on how to better their boats to the FWC. Misters will be on their list for their next upgrade.

They are definitely allowed to board your boat, to check for safety equipment, licenses, fish, or anything else they feel they need to look at.
