I'm thinking we went ~7-10X caching ~6-10/trip so I'm guessing my buddies & I killed & ate~75 max... Personally I tried to trade mine for Grouper,Mingos, &Triggers at the fish cleaning table... but my crew is catching on...

ZERO......MY BROTHER AND I USUALLY COME DOWN 3 OR 4 TIMES A YEAR TO CHARTER AND BOTTOM FISH,TO TAKE OUR KIDS FISHING LIKE MY DAD AND GRANDAD DID FOR US. BUT DRIVING FROM TN TO THE PANHANDLE TO CATCH 2 FISH IS TOO MUCH. I AM JUST SICK OF THE RIDICULOUSCREEL LIMTSAND LIMITED SEASONS THAT I SAID SCREW IT. SO I QUIT PAYING TO CHARTER.

EVERYONE IN MY FAMILY HAS A KAYAK NOW AND OUR FISHING IS DONE FROM THEM.

UNTIL THE GOVERNMENT (FED AND FL) GETS THEIR HEADS OUT OF THE ASSES, I WILL NOT BE CHARTERING ANOTHER BOAT. I AM ALL FOR FISH CONSERVATION BUT COME ON. WE ARE CATCHING SNAPPERS FREELINING BAITS FROM KAYAKS AROUND NO STRUCTURE AT ALL LESS THAN A MILE FROM THE BEACH! AND THEN I HEAR THEY ARE ALMOST EXTINCT!!! GIVE ME A FREAKIN BREAK!

AND THIS IS FROM A GUY THAT LIVES 400 MILES FROM THE GULF!

We fished 14 times for snapper with an average of 6 anglers during the season and never had an issue with our limit.

None, Isnt worth going.I eat mullet & cobio untill they ban that. Eat oyesters also. That seems to be & coming problem as well.:boo I dont understand the redfish overpopulation & red Snapper overpopulation to be a closure problem for rec fishermen .I feel if you want to eat a certain type of fish , you should be able to catch it rec wise. When is dove season going to go the same way? Deers next! What the hell is going on?
