so im out of buisness
Maybe. Nothing would stop this Gator from tossing jigs around. Honestly; are you going to quit tossing? Do you have a special jig which only a Snook will inhale and Jacks, Tarpon, Redfish and many others will completely ignore? You do understand that in order to shut down Snook season, you`d have to shut fishing down?

tthis little miracle fish is a major food source for young Snook. Where fish are concerned, the less hungry they are, the faster they grow.

You will not stop Snook fishing, and you will discourage enough people to wipe out gainful employment; meanwhile, the burlap bag bunches will grow. I would perhaps limit the number of slots per season each angler can harvest, but I would never deny deep fat fried boneless snook to anyone willing to pay.

fishnfool73 wrote:Where on the West Coast are you ? The majority of the snook kills I have seen were far north of their traditional range. The last decade of mild winters and the rebounding of their stocks had snook spreading where they shouldn't be living. Based on that I see no reason for the shut down. No more than them not shutting them down after the red tides and fish kills you guys got hit with over there a few years back. I don't see the need based on what I have seen but your information may change my outlook. This is just overreaction to me.

Are you really mad or are you just joking around?
Tongue in cheek doesn't play well online. Pointing out the overreaction to our goverment shutting down the season on snook. Latest word is they will close season for two years . Mean while you post snook after snook..

we won't know till it gets close.
I have talked to a few FWC in my areas and they think it might be close for a whole year
they don't really know but remember alot of guides are the ones hollering the most to keep it closed, and
it was the guides that seem to have a bigger voice then us rec fishermen..
