unfortunately raven316 and I don't want to sound like a pessimist but if the SAMFC and NOAA had their way you wouldn't be allowed to keep an edible fish, this trend seems to be ongoing with no end in sight. Hope you get to fish for red snapper and keep a couple god knows none of us on the Atlantic can. Finally forced my hand, selling the boat, already sold most of my offshore gear.

So my question is what to do in the sort term? There is another thread about this in the Panhandle section that names nearly all the Destin boats as collaborators even though they are not in the collaborative. There don't seem to be many people asking about this and I find little recent information when I google the issue. I can drive down there and surf fish the entire time, I can go on one of the other Destin Headboats or Charters and keep some mango and white snapper or I could go on one of the three that are in the Collab and (maybe) keep a red snapper? If most of the Destin boats are on the **** list it doesn't give me much choice. At 66 I keep thinking, is this my last trip???

At this point, I wouldn't worry about it - just go fish. If you want to go on a headboat to catch a snapper, then go - nobody is going to hold it against you.
