Fish identification and size charts?

Post by G_Loc »

Hello,

Is there a chart I can buy or download that shows drawings of the fish common to South Florida along with their legal size regulations? I found some pictures on FWC's site, but I'd like to have everything on one sheet so I don't have to fumble around turning pages and whatnot

Sports Authority carries a laminated sheet that has pics of the common fish in the area along with how their taste is rated, but it doesn't post regulations with it. They also sell a yardstick that breaks down which lists the fish and its size regulations.

Thanks!

I printed out the regulations and I'll try to head out to Sports Authority to find that chart.

Most Sports Authority, Walmart, and B&T's have the Regss booklet sitting around on the counter free for the taking.

I went to a Sports Authority nearby and they didn't have anything. I stopped by B&F Marine yesterday and they had a big ruler w/ illustrations of fish on it and the size limits, but it was a decal to stick onto something. I hope they have something at Crook and Crook or Gordan's tomorrow on my way out...

What I did was use a word processor to create a table (2 x 5). In each cell I put a picture of the fish and under it the size and bag limit. Then I took the 2 sheets (back to back) to OfficeMax and had them laminated. When I go fishing, I throw it into the cooler.

It is amazing that you can't just go to a tackle shop and pick on up for $4 or $5 bucks. I'll tell you what. I'll try to make one up as a pdf file. If BF wants to do something with it, I'll donate it to the site.
