I just got off the phone with A biologist with the FWC and like the title says there's big changes coming to this fishery. There will be a new zone created in our area! There will be a reduction in the slot and the removal of the one fish over rule. Also the new implementation of a catch and release only in the month of February! This all goes against what was discussed during there meeting last year where they said trout were doing so well that they might lax the rules. The biologist mention that Florida wants to align and mirror what other states along the gulf are doing with the rules and regulations of several species.
