    I don't see where calling a sea trout a game fish does the game fish justice. Correctly or Incorrectly when I think game fish, I think of a fish that is sporting but with no table fare or too sporting to be used as table fare. When I catch sea trout, I think darn it's one of these stupid misnamed drums with those worms in it. Let's stick to real game fish like snook and poons. Heck if you have a 4-5 pound sea trout it is a big one, I don't see game fish potential there.

    No. I like it here fine. We just got a longer season, and a larger catch allowance. Game fish status?? Thats like calling the bully that just socked you in the jaw a sissy. Yall want another wallop? We are winning.............

    Designating seatrout a gamefish is not about sporting qualities, it's about giving it a specific status so that it can't be commercially fished. Recreational seatrout fishing is too valuable to the Florida economy to be left to commercial fishermen to make a couple bucks.

    What is the size of the commercial seatrout fishery? How many lbs do they take every year out of Florida waters? Just curious....Mike
