Can't happen soon enough. Make it a size limit like 36-54 inches 1 per day 3 per boat max no spearing

If you find where they are hanging out and its not that hard, they are like catching trout in a pool at the carnival.... just drop a jack in and its game on.
I just don;t see not allowing spear-fishing them, if you are allowed to keep them it should be fair game like Hog Fish. If 1 fish per person with that type slot its not going to devastate the fishery, so long as there is no commercial opening.

If your stand is fair game, then commercial fishing will have to join in. It wouldnt be right for them not too. If the number start to drop as they did for hogfish... then like hog fish they revised the rules and the new rules go in place. Hog fish new rules should be set sometime this year. (tommy
