Is Amberjack open?? I'd heard it was closed until later...here's what the "news" is on myfwc.com:

Gulf federal:
At the Oct. 2017 Gulf Council meeting, a new recreational season structure for greater amberjack was approved. Pending U.S. Secretary of Commerce approval, the season open annually for the entire month of May, and from Aug. 1 through Oct. 31. Until this season structure is approved, the season in Gulf federal waters will open Jan. 1, 2018.
Learn more.

my question is has the Sec of Comm approved this yet? if so, it seems it's closed Jan 1 - May 1

Thanks for the heads up Billy Bob.

Hey, reading the regs it sounds like you MIGHT be right...I'm not trying to discourage you...I just wish I knew for sure....I'd join you out there!

I also "heard" Triggerfish is open in Federal on Jan 1 but I wouldn't bet on that either.

Iím still planning on going out the Sunday morning12/31 assuming weather cooperates if anyone wants to get s cpl dives in. 1/1 is looking like a no go with seas kicking up.

Hey Durkee

the link below only covers FL State Waters

It refers you to the link that I quoted above which still leaves one wandering....is it open? is it closed?

as for calling the FWC for answers, good luck with that!

they probably won't be able to give you a definitive answer and their generic response (based on my previous interaction with them) is "if your not positive error on the side of caution and don't catch them"

Well, the whole reason for calling them is to remove all doubt....but I DOUBT they will

Lastcast, that's the exact same stuff I posted above...so the question is how do we know if the newer seasons have been "approved"
