Observations

I have noticed the number and overall size of red snapper has increased, especially in the past three years. However, there is no doubt in my mind the grey trigger population has been reduced, possibly due to the imbalance of the substantial population of red snapper.

Perhaps the NOAA should focus on the shortage of weedlines and spend all of their time in the Sargasso Sea to determine the cause instead of using junk science to wrongfully regulate the red snapper fishery.

Personally, I would be in favor of a longer season with a two-fish limit rather than a short season with a four per person limit.
