    I remember one year we were diving for Crawfish (Lobster) and after we limited out on Bugs we went deep dropping and caught some nice Snowy Groupers.
    We got checked on the way in and the FWC officer asked us if we got the Groupers spearfishing.  :|
    C'mon man.

    Pretty bad when the populous knows the regs better then the rule makers.
    THERE SHOULD BE NO COMMERCIAL FISHING ALLOWED FOR ANY SPECIES THAT IS CONSIDERED OVERFISHED.

    We have more to lose than they do.

    It’s really fun when you get a mixed bunch of snapper. We got wrote up years ago in the Keys for having undersized “cuberas”. We tried to
    tell the guy they were dog dog snapper, even got out Vic Dunaway’s book on fish ID and showed the two officers pictures of both. We finally had a couple local charter captains show up, and they agreed with us. So they let us go with a warning. Not sure what it was for, since we did nothing wrong.

    Must admit I know nothing of Dog Snapper. 

    I snapped these Cubera pictures while fishing the Elbow:
