Another typical Florida land grab.  This one will be 'great' for our beaches......

    Got to thinking.. will all of these "private beaches" still get renourishment using tax payer dollars?  If so, that's a problem.

    Doesn't the "high tide line " change with every tide and moon cycle?

    Yes, that was a retorical question.
    THERE SHOULD BE NO COMMERCIAL FISHING ALLOWED FOR ANY SPECIES THAT IS CONSIDERED OVERFISHED.

    And where would the tide line be if they didn't renourish..

    Florida Wildlife Federation review, discussion, opposition and alerts were a hint to big troubles.
    Hunters are present yet relatively uncommon in Florida :wink

    Relax, folks, its a clarification, we have basically had that law on the books forever. 

    Here we have Hillsboro Beach. They have a sing at the Deerfield Line that is basically a no-trespass warning.

    In Deerfield, about 10%-15% of the beach is privately owned, but for the most part, there are few access restrictions.
