    28' should be pretty close to, if not in state waters off Tarpon Springs, depending on your direction. Keep in mind that it goes by nautical miles and is measured from the nearest point of land. 9 Nautical miles = 10.35 statute miles. So you don't hit the outer edge of state waters until you are 10.35 miles west of Anclote Key. Most of my numbers around that area are ~30-35'.

    Unfortunately, the state only has jurisdiction over state waters, the fed must protect the bulk of the fish for the commercial harvesters from us greedy recreational guys taking 2 fish at a time.

    So....what you have to do is get one on the line, pull anchor, and slowly ease back towards the coast before you pull it in the boat?
    People use statistics the way a drunk uses a street light, for support rather than illumination.

    That will work.

    According to NOAA 90% of the red snapper are caught in 1% of the gulf, that being state waters. Yea, right.

    If you have ars in the box and your in federal waters, your busted. If you catch em in state waters, you need the stay in state waters.

    What if they are still in the bags they came in from Publix?
