Fishing is a favored pastime for Florida residents and visitors, but while just about every catch is fun to reel in, not every catch is a keeper. We’re about a month out from snook season, but until then it is still legal to catch-and-release these sly silverfish. It’s important to follow rules and regulations of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) not only to avoid penalties but also to respect the beautiful Florida marine environment we all love so we can enjoy it for years to come. In order to help ensure fish populations remain sustainable for future generations, educate yourself before fishing, and understand proper handling techniques so your catch-and-release provides for the best chance of fish survival.
