A solid congrats needs to be sent out to the folks at the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust for their work to preserve and protect Bonefish in Florida (and other places, but for this post, Florida) with a boatload of irrefutable science (see, that’s what they do).
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission decided Wednesday to move forward on a new rule that would declare bonefish a catch-and-release species, with no harvest of them allowed.
Love it. Gotta get over there… have not fished in Florida, which seems a little silly now. Well, thinking about it, I actually did fish Florida… but it was a long, long, long time ago. I was 10. There was spin fishing off some beach… I caught a crab.
