I got word last night about what will be the regulations change.
1. Circle hooks mandatory if using bait
2. The slot will change.
Previously ( for us ) you could only keep 1 fish per day 18" to 28" or over 40. All fish between 28 and 40 must be released.
The keep size will be 1 fish between 28" and 35 or 38" ( I don't remember which)
This is a complete reversal of what they have been doing citing the 28-38 are spawning size.
I think they realize just how many fish are being taken out before they even reach maturity.
I still scratch my head...
