Florida Tarpon & Bonefish Regulations

May 26, 2013 By: Erin Block

The final vote on proposed regulations which would make tarpon and bonefish catch-and-release only species in Florida will be cast June 12 at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission meeting. And while “a positive outcome on this vote is far from certain,” according to the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust, there is still time to make a difference.
