EXPLANATION OF SALTWATER CREEL & SIZE LIMITS
1
RED DRUM (REDFISH) AND SPOTTED SEATROUT (SPECKLED TROUT)
Recreational saltwater anglers may possess a two days’ bag limit on land; however, no person
shall be in possession of fish over the daily bag limit in any one day or while fishing or while on
the water, unless that recreational saltwater angler is aboard a trawler engaged in commercial
fishing for a consecutive period of longer than 25 hours. Take or possession of red drum in
federal waters is prohibited.
The possession limit for red drum and spotted seatrout taken south of U.S. Hwy 90 shall be
three times the daily take limit when the fisherman holds and is in possession of a valid recreational fishing license and can show a landing receipt from a public boat launch located south
of U.S. Hwy 90 that demonstrates to the satisfaction of the department that the fisherman has
been actively on the water or at a remote camp that can be accessed only by water for two days
or more. The fish shall be kept whole or whole gutted in separate bags for each species of fish.
The bags shall be marked with the date the fish were taken, the species, the number of fish
contained in the bag, and the name and license number of the person taking the fish. The fish
shall only be in the possession of the person who took the fish. However, no fisherman shall be
actively fishing or engaged in fishing while in possession of more than the daily take limit.
2
OFF-WATER BAG LIMIT
Two days’ bag limit allowed in possession off of the water, not while fishing or in a boat EXCEPT
as mentioned above in relation to south of U.S. Hwy 90.
