you cannot keep redfish caught in federal waters. they are federally protected.remember alsoif you catch reds in state waters and transit to federal waters and get stopped you will be in trouble.

Very true!

An Alabama Marine Resources Officer spoke to our fishing club (ACFA) last year. He said THE most common citation they give is for red drum possession in Federal Waters (3 nm off Alabama).
