Two Net Boats on Burnt Store Bar....

Tuesday morning. They each had a little kicker boat behind them. I skipped some pompano when I went by them. Are they seining pomps? are they allowed to do this or where they just flat gillnetting? They were between two pines and burnt store channel.

    Why didn't you report them? Have a couple snook in the cooler?

    Based on FWC website pompano can be taken on haul seine.

    Last year I saw two guys in a mullet boat with a smaller boat in tow. They ran onto a flat and made a couple of circles, then deployed a sane-net about 300' long. Then started hauling mullet. I called FWC and described the event. I ask if they were violating the law because I was going to get more information if they were violating and keep an eye on them till law enforcement could respond. Well, the dispatcher said that some commercial guys are licensed to to use sane-nets and some can only use cast nets. So, what do you do? She didn't make like it was any big deal.

    was probably a seine netter catching mullet. There are a lot of guys in the area licensed to do that. The little boats on the back are the giveaway. Mt neighbor does this for a living.
