Default Snapper???!

Ok, here is the question!! Alabama federal season stays open longer than Florida's but Fl state water stays open 44 days so if I run out in Alabama fed waters then run state waters back to P pass do I need a Alabama license?

Alabama has a 3 mile state waters. If you are further than 3 miles off Al. You're in federal waters. There's not a lot of snapper within 3 miles.

How are you going to prove you legally caught the sn without a Al. License? No you can't and I would think you would be required to land the fish in Alabama with the license. My last question is WHY?

How can they even tell if you caught the snapper in Florida state waters or federal waters if you get questioned?

Believe me they will know. You do use a gps dont you. If you go into federal waters and stop or have fish = violation

So if you fish in state waters and catch limit of ARS and head out in fed waters to troll and get stopped in fed waters on way home what will be the outcome.
