Charter/Headboat For-Hire
My family business has been fishing central west coast of Florida for nearly 90 years and four generations. Today we operate 6 federally permitted vessels including two 65+ passenger head boats and four federally permitted charter vessels. On top of these permits, I am also here today to represent the Florida Guides association as their Offshore Director. Finally, I am a CCA life member as well. Turtle release gear suggested at this council meeting
We feel flexibility for enforcement officers needs to be added to this process as well. For example, if you don’t have the exact brand of pliers or de hookers in the regs but the ones on board your vessel are close to the ones required but simply a different make or model there shouldn’t be violations. The most glaring example of why flexibility is so important is the de-hookers that were added to the list of gear. These are not even being produced any longer and are unobtainable because the company who holds the patent on these de-hookers has been out of business for a long period. Therefore, flexibility is paramount for our enforcement officers.

Don't understand the amberjack closing. Don't know who harvests them, we take a couple per year, rarely seen anyone fish for them, see an abundance of amberjack off SW Florida. Why the closing......??????

As the health of the Gulf Coast is correlative with the wealth of the Gulf Coast, as well as surrounding ecosystems,!I feel that this innovative protocol is exceptional for local and commercial fishermen. I would like to see this ‘trend’ spread beyond the Gulf of Mexico.
