Boca Pass Legality

Heading to Boca in a few weeks to fish the pass. What is considered "illegal" in the pass? Is it just having a weight below the hook?

    So as long as the weight is above the hook we can still snag them?

    Snagging has always been illegal, regardless of hook/weight position.

    You aren't skilled enough to troll the SW section on Tarpon. They learned their lesson last year when a troll went on for over a year.

    Yes, you can still snag them. Matter of fact you can still be the first one to snag one this year if you hurry down.

    Let me ask one more question of the almighty FWC's newest and greatest regulations for the beloved Boca Grande Pass. When you hook a sardine, threadfin, shrimp, crab, etc.... wouldn't that be considered "weight" and doesn't most of it normally reside sort of BELOW the hook? Should I tie a small float to the other side of the crab to keep it above the hook?

    Officially, all fishing in boca grande pass is now illegal except for I guess rapala and the like where the hooks are the lowest object of the tackle.


    Oh crap...natural bait is not considered a weight....Thank goodness.

    This post I read the other day didn't mention that: http://myfwc.com/news/news-releases/2013/september/05/tarpon-gear/
