Mr Walsh is correct while the illustrious Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC) is dead Snook wrong. Apparently the harvest ban imposed on Snook fishermen is unwarranted or else FFWCC is intentionally allowing a heavily stressed Snook population to be severely damaged. Personally I do not believe they would do that. FFWCC is lucky PETA hasn't charged them with targeting Snook to be repeatedly tortured by deeply imbedded hook removal that kills many fish by a slow agonizing death.There is an old saying "When u don't understand a government decision FOLLOW THE MONEY". In this case the money can be followed to the East coast of Florida where fishermen are allowed to keep the "oh so imperiled" Snook when caught. I wonder if Politics could be at work at FFWCC. It is everywhere else.One thing for sure - many business owners and residents in the former Snook Fishing Capital of Everglades City, Florida are fed up with FFWCC's policies that are destroying their ability to operate a business or have a job.On the other hand if the Snook ban is warranted FWC needs to do a total ban including the targeting of the species.Take your pick FFWCC folks are watching.
