FWC Extends Emergency Snook Closure

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY FROM THE FWC:

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has temporarily extended the emergency closure of snook harvest and possession in Florida through Sept. 16. (Executive Order 10-39)

I spent an hour on the phone last night with our friend Captain Scott Moore, talking about this very subject, and whether or not we should all agree to avoid catching snook wherever possible. The result of that conversation is going to be an article you'll see (hopefully) by Wednesday. What I heard from Scott was scary, and at the risk of actually supporting further regulation, we have to agree that this is a good idea. You'll learn more from the article, but trust me when I say that the discussion will convince you that it's in our best interest to continue protecting our favorite species.
