Default How far offshore is fishing open?

The guy on Fox News in Mobile last night said fishing was open thirty miles offshore. Did he mean 3 miles. I thought fishing in federal waters was closed until May 17 at the least.

According to the last bulletin I saw defining the restricted zone the zone begins at about 29 miles offshore.

Somebody had a thread on here showing it I believe it was THilton but couldn't find it. Believe it was below 29.5 deg.

Link to the most recent map


They keep pushing it east even though the spill is moving West. I blame Roy Crabtree.

Thanks for the info. For some reason I thought that all federal waters south of Miss. & Al. were closed. If the weather holds out and the oil stays away I plan on heading out Sunday and do my best rescuing some fish.
