Im gonna try once more and say they are there. If you have to travel for them then do so. Fish wont come to you & you will have to work for them. These are shore bound fish

From Capt Greg...

"State waters only. Does not effect my trips unless we fish in state waters. Which we never do.

If it ever does get adopted in federal waters then the limit on my trips will drop from 30 muttons to 15. I think we can all agree 15 is more than enough.
Lastly it does effect the boats that fish inside the Dry Tortugas National Park as it is considered state waters.

18" will eliminate "any" chance for boatless fisherman to catch keeper. But it appears 5 per person/day won't affects party boat fishing within state water much as boat limit will be applied except for dry Tortuga spot within state water... Some serious private mutton trip during spawning may end...
