    Cool Nice Day Out Of The Cape

    Went out on the Miss Canaveral for a full day of fishing. Stopped to get a couple dozen live shrimp to get a head start with snappers but
    once started changed to squid as most of the fish being brought up was small sea bass and being that the new size limit of 13", most where throw backs, at least
    98%, there was tons of sharks and a few trigger fish also came over the rail. I managed to keep a nice 24" red grouper for the table.
    Overall was a very nice day of fishing after releasing about 30+ under size sea bass myself alone. The crew was great and always eager to help when needed.

    You cannot keep anynrsd snapper until sept 14th accordingly to FWC. And that applies to miss canaverall. As we all se them taking in illegal snapper all the time I guess it is ok if the are bringing in revenue into the port which is BS!

    If you want to keep a red snapper outside of those two weekends...be my guest, just hope that you don't get stopped by fish and game. Could be a long afternoon for you.

    red snapper are legal to keep if caught in state waters......which is with in 3 miles of land in the atlantic and 9 miles in the gulf.......if you are caught with red snapper on your boat you may have to prove you where in state waters when you caught them, but in reality the burden of proof lays on them....either way you will most likely get a ticket and have your day in court to prove your case...........so do you feel lucky well do ya...

    "reading is fundamental" is what the public service announcement says...

    He wrote RED GROUPER...not snapper.

    i dont think anyone MISREAD. I think they are referring to when the OP said he was getting a head start on the snappers. Whether he was just poking fun who knows but i find it hard to believe we all misread grouper as snapper. No one is attacking the OP in this thread either.

    I read it entirely different...

    He bought shrimp...to get a head start on snappers...

    mangroves are snappers..as are lanes...as are....you get the picture.
