Are Scamps legal or not at the Edge right now. The way a read regs, I assumed they were not legal. But, others tell me they are legal now?? I also assume snowys and yellowedge are legal. Thanks for any clarification.

They are not legal right now because they are considered a shallow water grouper along with red grouper and gags. I believe they open up on the 1st of April, someone correct me if im wrong.

Dreamweaver, that should put that to rest.

I wonder why the Alabama calendar with regs does not show them as being closed but after double checking outdooralabama.com they have corrected it and it now does. they need to get their crap together

DreamWeaver21 (3/9/2010)Scamp is closed. So is yellowedge and yellow mouth. Snowys are open until Recess catches them all :)

Yellowedge are open yellowfin and yellowmouth are not , we will stop catching snowys very soon. We just adapt to the seasons and regulations .Next month scamp ,gags and cobia mmmmmm sounds so good .
