Submitted by Brett Fitzgerald on June, Jun 21, 2014

The latest (January-June) Florida Saltwater Fishing Regulations, also feature the Angler Action program

- see page 19 of the Digital Edition "Report Your Catch!"  [click here to read pdf]  or click on image at left for digital view of entire publication.

On page, 18,  there's a handy identification chart showing all the species of fish in the jack family commonly caught in Florida waters.

At the center is the list of all saltwater species regulations. As a quick check of slots and bag limits, it is mighty handy.   A  printable view of just these 2 pages can be found at this link. http://myfwc.com/media/2462342/2013%20Quick%20Chart.pdf

Here are a few other features in this edition:
Page ten gives a run down of the new spotted seatrout rule changes and also shows a very useful color chart of the four regions that the state designates for seatrout anglers.  New regions and rules for redfish (red drum) on the same page.     Pick up a free copy at the Snook & Gamefish Foundation booth at the Ft. Myers Florida Sportsman Show this weekend.

The entire publication can be downloaded as an Acrobat pdf file at this link.
