It's official. It's open season, and that means anxious sinker-bouncers around Florida are gearing up in preparation of heading offshore to their favorite wreck, reef and rock-pile. In their crosshairs…grouper. The fish have been off limits during the winter spawning season and now it's time to see the results. But before we throw the dock lines, all of the lead-slingers out there need to know the law. Not only to avoid hefty fines, but more importantly so we can all do our part towards sustaining a healthy grouper fishery well into the future.
