11-15 flounder trout red and stone crab

Launced the boat at dusk and caught a red and then headed south to gig some flounder and to scoop up a few stone crab. Then we finished the night with some dock light trout. We had much success, the big flounder is 7lbs, and we probably caught and released 20 trout, but kept 3. Good eating for the next week or so.

    Closed season had been the month of February. Now there is NOT a closed season.

    "now there is not a closed season" :banghead

    I'm so ****. I guess its better to be safe then sorry. I don't even know why i thought that??? I'm filling the box sunday... (with no more than our limit ofcourse)
    I guess while i'm confessing my ignorance can someone explain how to quote a text on the forum. I cant figure it out and my quotes are lame compared to everyone else's. Thanks for an educational day on fla sportsman.com

    Yes at the bottom of the post you want to quote there is a button that says "reply with quote". U click that and do exactly that or this.

    As far as stone crab, there are plenty in N Fla, and trout are not closed in the N east in nov. only in S Fla, until the new law where there is no closed season, but that is not til 2-1-12

    Trout season is open year round as a new rule, along with new redfish regulation starting in Feb 2012 which increases the bag to 2 per person per day. GO NUTS!!

    We use to catch the stone crab near the dames point bridge a lot and near the little jetties. We saw a guy a few years ago getting some and he did not know to get just a single claw, and he got busted and fined pretty hefty. We constantly got our traps stolen. I am not sure if we were in someones area, or if people were just being a**holes. After four traps got stolen within a matter of a 24-48hr soak, it was quitting time for me.

    I hope you all know this is an year old report that got bumped by Knot2Worry for whatever reason!

    That's funny....FS even bumped it to the roller on the NE home page....:rotflmao

    Nothing like putting a sexy young lady on the report to bump it back to the top...even if it is a year old....:grin


    ...but it's all good in my book...

    Not that I complain :). Everyone needs to look at something easy on the eyes once in a while at work!

    But just can't comprehend how FS wouldn't even look at the report date and stuff before they throw it on the front page. Looks like the person Incharge to do this was not paying attention to the date and only staring the person holding the fish. Can't blame him though ;).

    Arun, so what's your point on making ALL BOLD type with exclamation point?

    If you must know my logic, I was going back to last year's reports to compare fishing reports from then and now, when I came across a post with a lady angler showing her nice flounder catch. What's the problem with "bumping" it back to the top? Is there something that I should know about "bumping" or is this just "striking a cord" with you? :huh
