Bonefish is to officially become a gamefish in Florida. This is great news for sport fishermen and it should be emulated elsewhere, with control of course, for more game-fishes.
The current 1 fish daily bag limit will be abolished and bonefish will be catch and release only effective 1 July 2011.
Only hook and line is permissible for bonefish with temporary possession for photographs and documentation of a record catch.
Bravo to Florida FWC and those involved to make this happen.
