A comment titled: Re: Federal Snapper Season in response to a report titled: Federal Snapper Season

Mike I find it funny that you say the average recreational fishermen that owns a boat is going to resent me yet I'm not supposed to resent anyone who can catch them in state waters and clean them at the dock right in front of me. But The fact of the matter is I don't because I represent the recreational fishermen that cannot afford a boat that's what a lot of you don't understand. I'm not against the guys that own a boat that's great they get to enjoy the fishery we have . But there's no way every fisherman that doesn't own a boat can book a charter in 15 days . Maybe now some of you can see how unfair it really is to me as a charterboat captain and for the average fisherman that can't afford a boat. To the hunter I get it but please tell me how the average fisherman that owns a boat has helped to support me. Please show me one post from the average boat owner that talks about how unfair it is that charter boats can't fish state waters. CCA has sued the Feds because we have 40 days and they want the state to have control. Well the state has control over the state water season and I'm not allowed to fish a single day. I am supporting the average fisherman not just boat owners, how do you not see that. For those who want charter boats to be in the commercial sector that would be great I could fish 365 days a year but I'm trying to help the average recreational fisherman.
Mike please explain what you ment by this 'This is all about corruption. Don't believe all the lies you read when articles are forum post talk about things such as accountability! You are being robbed but don't expect the robber to say that! - '
Please explain who the robber is because if your talking about the Feds I've never seen them post on forums in my life so I'm assuming your talking about charter guys. Just trying to clarify.

This is a quote from a comment posted earlier. 'It is wrong for the recreational fishing season to be different for me than for any other recreational fisherman in Federal waters. Do you see the absurdity in the fact that I would be allowed to keep red snapper on your boat but not on my own boat? -'
Yes I Do and for around 150 days you can catch red snapper in the state waters out of your boat and I can't. I have been personally told by the wildlife and fisheries I will be written a ticket. For 25 days out of the federal season I can catch snapper and you can't. Do the math who's getting screwed. Charter Boats!
Now since a person fishing on a charter spends an average of $400 a year fishing with me, then a person who owns a boat spends thousands of dollars to have a boat each year, which one of these would you say was the average joe?

I do understand your frustrations but the fact of the matter is charter boat captains make up a very small percentage of the snapper caught. So even if we didn't get to fish 45 days the recreation fisherman would not get but 2 or 3 at the most more days to fish. If the state wouldn't have opened there season we could all fish the federal waters more days. So don't be pissed at the charter guys for being able to take people out that go once a year and would also like to keep 2 snapper. I've never heard 1 recreational fisherman that owns a boat complain that the charter guys can't fish snapper in state waters. That's because it didn't affect them. So instead of being upset about us being able to allow more people to enjoy our great fishery. Show up and the council meetings be more involve with what's happening. Anyone can go and voice there opinion . I'll be there if I'm not on the water. I wasn't trying to call anyone out. It just suck knowing everyone is doing everything they can to take away my way of life and all I want to do is let people enjoy the outdoors.

Wolf man jack. The only thing that you were right about is that the snapper do belong to the citizens of the United States and so what you're telling me is that if you own your Own boat you should be able to catch red snapper. but if you don't own your own boat then you shouldn't be allowed to ever catch a red snapper unless you book a charter the first 15 days of June. You're just flat out a selfish person. I'm not allowed to catch any I'm trying to let the rest of the citizens of United States be able to catch them once a year. Once again I don't get to catch them the citizens of the United States that the snapper belong to as you said get to catch them when they're on the trip with us. So I'd say it's unfair for me and the American people who only gets to catch them maybe one day when you get to catch them 15. Not to mention you can catch them in state waters over 100 days a year and the average person that cannot afford a boat does not get to catch them so you do not have to pay anyone anything ever to catch red snapper you're also allowed a four person limit after the federal season. It's not just about you since you own a boat it's about the American citizens which they will not be able to catch red snapper unless a Charterboat takes them. The fact that it makes you sick that other people get to enjoy snapper fishing who don't own a boat is pretty sad.

Actually You only have to have a federal reef permit to fish federal waters not state waters charterboat captain's are not allowed to fish state waters all year long unless they are not on a charter. Then even if you do get stoped by federal game warden you can still get a ticket so legally a charterboat captain cannot fish the state waters if he has a federal permit on his vessel but I've been told if you're not on a charter they will not ticket you. You do have to purchase the federal permit from someone else Who already has it they will not issue any new ones. Mike being a field reporter I would think you would be a little more educated about how you speak I've been a charterboat captain for 20 years now I've not been given anything over the last 20 years everything that I could catch is been taken from me nothing has been given to me. This is the first time in several years that I can fish for snapper more than 10 days a year you as a recreational fishermen can fish for them over 180 days so who's been given what. I'm not saying that the regulations are right but people like you and the CCA who are against charterboat guys having 45 days so that they can make a living is just wrong. So next time you want to say that something was given to me come try doing what I do for 20 years and then when you show back up at the dock after you let go snapper all day and watch recreational fishermen clean them in front of your face and customers ask why we can't keep them think about what you say before you speak. In fact The first gentleman is right I do this for a living a way of life and I'm not allowed to keep one snapper the entire year so tell me what I was given once again.If you either own your own boat or have friends that bring you is it okay for you to catch red snapper 15 days federal waters and Over 100 days state waters with a lot of those days being a 4 fish limit. But it's not okay for the average person who charters a boat maybe once a year not to be able to keep 2 red snapper each and I'm not allowed any even though it's my way of life. Don't be so selfish. You are GIVEN a state water season I was not. I took serious offense to what you said and it makes me wonder why I spend money to advertise on this site when the people who run it could care less about charter boat captains that helped build it.

Twin vee just got a bunch of fiberglass work and is ready to go. We also ran the big boat this weekend and it was really nice.
