Is it legal to fish for grass carp in a stocked golf course lake. I would release any fish caught immediately after bringing them in. I only ask because I have heard some say that it is legal and some say that it isn't legal.
Thanks for your response.
After reading the above, I would say it's illegal. CANNOT POSSESS!!, but then again, I'm not an FWC Officer
At one time you could fish for snook when they were out of season but they need to be released unharmed. You certainly aren't allowed to posess them when out of season.
They are very lethargic, not very good fighters at all but they are plentiful in my lake and I fish for them when the Bass fishing slows down. "I don't posses them" I bring them to the bank and release them while there in the water. Pretty soon we will need a permit to own a fishing rod and reel.
it appears you can fish for them. catch and release
posessing a fish to me means taking it home with me or putting it in my cooler on ice. maybe someone from fwc can clarify. its a shame this question has not been answered for you by the fish police and it has been 2 weeks
This question and many others are easily answered by visiting http://myfwc.com including how to measure fish. Also, wonder how many people have tried just picking up the phone and calling. Nicest group in the Tallahassee office...all five of them.
