Mangrove Snapper 10/person in federal waters?

When did this happen?  Not that it does me any good since my guys went to our favorite spot this afternoon and didn't get a one.

    It's been that for a long time, nothing new. They have to be 12 inches also.

    10 fish, and have to be 10 inches is what I’ve known unless it’s changed?

    From Fwc’s website…. Just learned something. Haven’t gone after them for a while.

    Once you get your Mangrove Snapper in Federal waters you can not stop your boat in state waters until you arrive at the boat ramp and you better be able to prove you where fishing in federal waters only and haven't fished state waters. 
    The worst day of fishing is still better than the best day of work:\

    It is not your job to prove you were in federal waters, it’s the job of Leo to prove you weren’t

    I'm sure the FWC officer will be very sympathetic to your explanation when he says tell it to the judge. you may beat the rap but you won't beat the ride.
