    Seems like things have to turn the corner at some point with snapper management... What’s the answer?

    Think rec anglers should get more red snapper? The Gulf Fisheries Management Council is taking comments now over changes to catch allocation in federal waters, and rec anglers need to make their voice heard. This article summarizes what is at stake and how to get involved:

    Stay tuned for other posts about recent court decisions about how the red snapper fishery is managed, etc. Lots on the line for rec fishermen in this one.

    What do you think, are we going to get a fair shake here?

    There is some information here about how to get your voice heard with the red snapper allocation too.
