    Mullet limit in Pinellas - 11 Dec, 2018

    Is there somewhere in pinellas where the bag limit for mullet is only 5 a day?  Reading the fwc weekly law enforcement report made me look at the reg, which is 50 a day...

    Officer Specialist Bibeau saw an individual carrying a cast net along a seawall while working an area where the bag limit for mullet is only five per harvester per day. From a concealed location he watched the individual for approximately four hours. The individual began fishing with the use of the cast net and caught multiple mullet. Officer Specialist Bibeau contacted the individual as he was preparing to leave the area and conducted a fisheries inspection. He found the individual to be in possession of twelve mullet. After conducting a records search through agency files, Officer Specialist Bibeau found that the individual had been named in a prior intel report for being a subject known to violate the five-mullet bag limit. Officer Specialist Bibeau wrote the individual a misdemeanor citation for violation of the five-mullet bag limit.
