FWC and Illegal Swordfish Sales
FWC, do you watch this forum anymore??
If you do, why are you doing nothing about the illegal recreational swordfish wales?
Last week, instagram had a video of 2 recs with 5 fish in the boat. They were even stupid enough to video the name of the boat etched into the bait well.
When a legal comm fisherman went to sell his fish in Boynton, the seafood stor (with no dealer licens) had the 5 fish and didn't want any legal ones since he was over stocked.
At least half dozen large fish went to back door this weekend. ( when I guy has a 470 and shows only about 20 lbs of fish in the box after cleaning, the fish went to market!)
With the heavy sword bite going on even the illegal backdoor market is full of fish, but its ridiculous that no action is taken while the legal guys get the shaft!
FWC or NOAA law enforcement, private message me and I will mail the video proof
