    That's what I've heard too.

    They're almost too cool to kill anyway around these parts IMHO.

    I agree with Troutman, let them breed and perhaps one day we will have a fishery along the lines of Tampa Bay.

    2 boats is 2 to many and at least 1 shy of enough

    First snook I caught in this region, back when you could keep'em...


    spawned out and over-slot. :)

    Growing up in S. Fl and fishing for them since about the mid 60's, I can tell ya I ate a bunch of them, so I would certainly like to keep one now and then these days too.

    But I'm all good with the current closure if it means a healthier and sustainable stock sooner than later. :thumbsup

    Some fish I think need to have very strict limits to keep the fishery going. It seems to be working in this case to get the population back to a havestable level. I would like to see some type of tag available just in case one is hooked deep and can not be released. I'm not sure how it could ever be policed through. Below is a picture of my first real Snook(caught in April out of Homosassa with the help of a forum member), what a fighter. He deserved to swim and hopefully will give someone else the chance to experience it. DSC_0199.jpgCan't wait to tangle with another one.
    Tight lines!:fishing
