Snook Permit Refunds
Guess what? If you spent your hard earned $10 for an additional snook stamp on your fishing license, just to find out last week that you can't keep any here on the Gulf coast until (possibly) September, 2012, the FWC will actually give you your money back. It seems like a very simple process. Just go to this page at the FWC website, fill out the refund application and send it in with a photocopy of your fishing license. It might take up to 90 days but this is a good move on the FWC's part, especially since our buddies over on the east coast of Florida will get their season reopened later this fall.
