I kept telling yall this, we're about to get screwed even further than we could imagine.

Dear Captains and Recreational Anglers,

I am at the Gulf Council meeting in Destin Florida. Today in a 4-7 vote the joint committee chose a preferred alternative of a 14" size limit and 2 fish bag limit on red snapper for the recreational sector. The season would be May 15-July 31 (77 days) for 2008-2010. The full council will vote on this Thursday as the preferred alternative, I don't know what will happen. This will go out for public hearing prior to the council voting on final action in June for 2008-2010. You need to all be aware of what we are facing.

Roy Crabtree reported to us that the Office of Management and budget (OMB) is planning on filing the final interim rule this afternoon or tomorrow. It will be 6.5 million pound TAC, 2 fish bag limit, no captain and crew bag limit and a 13" size limit for the commercial sector.

Will keep you posted on what else happens.
Best Regards,
Bobbi Walker

What I posted IS GOING TO THE FEDERAL REGISTER FOR POSTING.
This is for an interim rule. The council is going to vote on the OTHER dates in June.
Confused? Then they have accomplished their goal.
