Snook Season Will Reopen This Fall

Some good news for west coast anglers was just issued from the FWC.  After a closure of more than two years after the destructive freeze of January, 2010, snook season will be reopened in a few months on this side of the state.  This is a controversial decision with a lot of anglers but I agree with the FWC on this one.  I've seen a lot of really decent snook this year and the slot size is so narrow that it's tricky to get a legal one.  These fish are doing just fine and it's time to let us keep one once again.  Download and read the whole FWC report here.
