September 19, 2019

The Florida FWC Division of Law Enforcement reported the following activity during the period ending August 29 in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.


Officer Allgood conducted an inspection on a vessel returning to the Pensacola Pass. The subject claimed he had caught two “Jacks” but did not know what type they were. Officer Allgood inspected his catch and found two undersized greater amberjack. The individual was cited for the violation.

Officer Specialist McHenry received a complaint that an individual fishing at the Bob Sikes Bridge was in possession of an oversized red drum. Officer Specialist McHenry responded to the area and found the subject in possession of a 35-inch red drum. The size limit on a red drum is from 18 to 27 inches. Officer Specialist McHenry also noticed the individual was impaired and requested Officer Specialist Ramos to assist. After a brief investigation, it was discovered that the individual was in possession of crack cocaine. Officer Specialist McHenry arrested the individual and transported him to the Escambia County Jail. He was cited for possession of crack cocaine and possession of an oversized red drum.


No report was received for Santa Rosa County.

    If you have to whip out a measuring tape every time you land a fish, what fun is that?

    this oversize thing really puzzles me. a fishing rodeo (correct me if i’m wrong) goes by who caught the biggest fish. now is the FWC is trying reward the fish for getting so nice and big, or what? is there some ecology thing i’m missing here? if the fishing rodeo (there used to be such a thing kids, i swear) is not judged on size, what is the criteria, looks or aroma? :D

    a crackhead fisherman, hmm…
