Circle hook regulation?

Postby 4wheelangler » Mon Dec 15, 2008 10:13 am

I switch to circle hooks a quite while back so I'm not worried but:

I heard theres a new regulation requiring anglers to use circle hooks. Specifically in the Keys, gulf side.

Has anyone else heard about this? Does it apply anywhere else?
