After reading several threads where people have kept double limits of fish from over night trips I felt that this needs to be pointed out. I'm not trying to bash anyone I'm just trying to keep people out of trouble.

If you open the link and look on page 8 under "Additional Rules" it talks about double bag limits. It states "Persons on qualified charter vessels or head boats with two captains for trips in excess of 24 hours may possess 2 days bag limits of reef fish species, king mackerel and Spanish mackerel. One day bag limits apply on all other species and trips regardless of length.

Thanks Formula4Fish.

In the update it states that there is a proposal to reduce the size limit on B liners from 11" to 10" and increase the possession limit to 20 fish with in your reef fish aggregate. Does anyone know if this has been enacted or if it's still just a proposal?

From http://www.gulfcouncil.org/Beta/GMFMCWeb/newslet/NEWSLTR-06-2007.pdf

An amendment that addresses overfishing and the overfished status of red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico was approved by the Gulf Council and is on its way to the Secretary of Commerce for approval and implementation. If approved, the plan will be implemented by NOAA Fisheries early next year.

I'm pretty sure the B Liner changes are included here.
