I see people catching Warsaw grouper off Islamorada. Isn't that illegal? Read more:
But at least once a week I see someone with one coming in or posting a pic with one they caught out here around Islamorada. But you can only catch them mainly in deep water. So doesn't this mean everyone is out catching these in federal water where they are illegal?
I'm a little confused because I wanted to fish for them but hear a lot of conflicting things. But according to what it says on FWC it seems like it's not legal to run out to the humps and catch a warsaw and then come back. Am I missing something? I even bought a fishing map online that has a 'warsaw spot' marked out around the humps in federal water.
Someone please clarify. Thanks!
