Published in Sport Fishing Magazine:

In an announcement on May 4, Louisiana fisheries officials reacted to an unprecedented 40-day red snapper season this year for red snapper in the western Gulf of Mexico by announcing a formal break from NOAA fisheries starting in 2013. That means, like Texas, Louisiana will no longer mirror red snapper seasons set for federal waters by adopting the same regulations for state waters. Instead, it plans to implement a "Louisiana-only" red snapper recreational season which will last far longer, from late March through September in state waters. In addition, the Lousiana Fish and Wildlife Commission will consider extending the definition of state waters from the traditional 9 statute miles to 9 nautical miles or slightly over 10 statute miles, thereby adding to the area that anglers can legally fish for red snapper during the Louisiana-only season.

Interesting. State waters 10 miles out. That has a certain appeal here in Carolina. Not sure why it's different in the Gulf.

Joe, I rode the Midnight Wind to the Grouper Promised Land and Capt John put me on the fish. Then I put those finely honed skills of mine to work. Exactly how you showed me! LOL! Anyway the end result was one of the best grouper sandwiches I've ever had. A great time with great folks. And I think that guy in the picture owes me money.
