same as flats said. fished eddy creek hoping the trout had moved into area during the cold, nothing, saw few dead sand trout, pinfish and small turtle. Fished surf, way to much grass, got one 12" whiting, went to haulover area, found dozen or so big snook dead, FWC was loading out, they had 5 turtles, said they only saw few dead snook. Really hard to believe when we saw the amount just a small area, also saw one 50-75lbs goliath dead.

good grief, please don't start another snook kill hysteria...a four inch slot, minimal season, and one fish limit aren't enough for ya? If you've lived in Florida for any reasonable length of time you'd know we average a hard freeze every 15 t0 20 years...just go ask any citrus grower. Do you really believe that closing the season following the 2010 kill, not allowing an angler to keep one fish in a four inch slot during 6 months out of the year had anything to do with the rapid recovery of the fishery? Certainly 2010 was a bad one, but not nearly as bad as some I've witnessed in my 60+ years living in Florida. 1983 was far worse and the fishery recovered within a year or so, with NO closures and rampant gill netting, just like it ALWAYS has since, I suspect, the beginning of time! Look, mother nature cleanses itself periodically to put balance back, in this case, the snook populations. When you see reports of anglers taking snook as far north as the St Mary's River you can probably bet a hard freeze is likely. So stop giving the snook guides more ammunition keep the fishery to themselves and their clients. They already have an accommodating fisheries commission that requires little evidence or justification to close a fishery.
