To ban just croaker leaves a lot of fish that catch trout just about as good as croaker. Can't count the number of times I was in Baffin and the only bait we could get were pinfish. Slayed them just the same. I've seen finger mullet work in much the same way in E. Matty several times.

don't have a problem with mullet or pins. at this point they haven't put a dent in the trout population like barking monkeys. now if i see stringer after stringer, day in day out, for years, of trout mutilation on mullet or pins, i might change my opinion. at this point there is not a demand for mullet and pins, for reason.

Agree!

Continuing on with the Trump references, I think people are experiencing Croaker Deranged Syndrome or better known as CDS! Most able fisherman, can catch trout on shrimp, mullet, pinfish just as good as with croakers. Trout are pretty aggresive feeders and are not that hard to catch. It's the FINDING THEM that separates the men from boys! lol!

a few barking monkeys on a reef will call them in, the others i do not believe do so?? put a few barkers on a reef, and the whole reef starts vibrating, it's a calling card unlike any other fin fish. so respectfully i disagree with you.

With the most conservative regs on the gulf and a limit of five trout who really cares if you use croaker, pinfish or jelly beans.

The limit was cut in half and I think 5 trout is more than a sustainable catch no matter how you catch them.

I wish they would add a "Like" button. This sums it all up. I've fished since the late 70's, and other than the couple of nasty freezes we've had the fishing has remained pretty awesome in the waters I fish.

I miss the big croaker run we had back then. I would rather eat a nice fat croaker than a skinny trout.

I agree with 1born2fish. They are great to eat and will take a lure and fight pound for pound as well or better than most other fish. Why not regulate croakers? They have regulations on gafftop, sheephead, drum, and even mullet. I have no problem with fisherman using finfish or croaker, but why use one of best tasting fish of the bays?

When I was a kid , we looked forward to the "Golden Croaker" runs. They were lb for lb just a little red as they fought like hell.
