Catch & Release
Our fishery is a limited resource. As more and more people discover the wonders of flats fishing, the pressure on our fish becomes greater. The captain likes fresh fish as much as anyone, but certain species are under too much stress to be harvested on a regular basis. On the West Coast, the bag limit for snook was reduced from two to one, with good reason. As mentioned under What We Catch, the majority of snook caught are under the 26" slot limit. Almost all snook over 26" are females, so you are not killing just one fish you are killing thousands (potentially millions) by removing that one fish from the breeding population. The captain prefers to release all healthy snook. Redfish are more abundant than snook, and may be kept in reasonable numbers. Trout are probably the most abundant game fish in Southwest Florida and may be kept to the limit of four per person, with all fish over twenty inches being released for breeding duties. Tripletail, cobia, sheepshead, snapper, grouper, flounder, pompano, and mackerel are all candidates to fill your table desires.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding catch and release, please do not hesitate to contact the captain. Telephone (239) 872-7841 or e-mail NativeAttitudeCharters@gmail.com
