I found this on the Florida Wildlife Commission website. What do you guys think?

News Release
Wednesday, June 12, 2013
Media contact: Amanda Nalley, 850-410-4943
(Back to Commission meeting news)
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reviewed and discussed the current status of snook populations in Gulf and Atlantic waters at its June 12 meeting in Lakeland before deciding to allow the recreational harvest of Gulf of Mexico snook to reopen this September.

I think they should just keep them as a game fish.  I love eating snook, but they are gonna be really pressured once they open up.

snook were closed because of the winter a couple years ago but they are everywhere now
with all the regulations on snook even when they are open i think this is a good thing besides you still have to catch them and even if you do catch one you can only keep them if they fall in a small window of five inches and only about 6 months out of the year

Ok, so I called the FWC to clarify the rule on the Snook permit. The rules state that “Snook permit required for harvest when saltwater license required, Illegal to buy or sell Snook, Snatch hooks and spearing prohibited.” Needing a license when on a boat or Yak I get that but wade or pier fishing is what I was wondering about. Technically you DO need a license when fishing from a pier or shore but you don’t have to pay for it that was the part that got me thinking. So I called and yes if you keep a Snook you need the permit no matter if it is from a boat or shore.

Just some info from the research department here at TBFO
