just to get a good topic started so here we go. in va and md you can keep one redfish over 27 in. i know in fl you can't. i think if enough people get together with enough good information we might be able to get that same type of limitation. i talked to a lot of people while i was at sebastian including rangers. seen them twice down there once on the boat and once on land to measure the fish. many years back they had something similar but the population of reds went down b/c people were keeping every one of them. so they restricted them. i got to talk to a few clammers out there and they are piping mad b/c the big schools are coming in and they are engorging themselves on them. leaving many clam beds desolated. so i know they are all for allowing i over the size limit. i also talked to a few charters and they said the opposite. they love the big reds b/c it is good for business and they can always get their people on them especially in the flats. so i pretty much got most sides of the story especially mine. i am a game fisher. i like to catch and release. i also like to catch and have good food on the table so i am for allowing 1 over 27 in rule. i believe there should be some restriction so we don't deplete it. especially in times of spawning. so i think there is a median somewhere that we can come to. what do you guys think? like i said might be able to get enough info and people together to present it to the fl fish and game and go from there. tight lines for everyone.
