    march 4th I went up to Sebastian inlet the day after fwc went to the dock at Sebastian and checked frame nets, I walked out on the catwalk and came across two Mexicans using mono filament frame box nets. I was pissed so I called fwc to report them. fwc came to the catwalk walked right past me , right past the Mexican with the box nets and ticketed some kid that climbed over the rail and was fishing from the fender. when he was done he walked right past the Mexicans again . I walked up to him and inquired bout why he didn't do anything with the Mexicans and there mono box net. he said I don't know anything about the box nets being illegal and questioned me about where I got my info. I told him from the offi er that was here the other night and he claimed he didn't know what I was talking bout................... SO I GUESS IT'S ONLY OK TO USE MONO FILIMENT FRAME/BOX NETS IF YOUR AN ILLEGAL AILEN MEXICAN!

    Easy there, Popcorn! The nationality of the fisherman have nothing to do with anything.

    SRY, I get this way when I get slapped with a wall of poo poo that just won't quit, crappy start to the season down here, then mild heart attack the day before Christmas, then a crappy middle of season, then harassed by fwc. then spend over 200 dollars getting my stuff legal again then march 4th, then come in here to find I have basically been kicked out of the forums for not posting my wonderful luck. I kinda feel like I've been kicked out of this forum for no good reason (minium post requirement) which basically says to me :::::::::::: if you ain't catching shrimp we ain't gonna help you!

    I met Capt Ron Friday. He is a super nice guy. He said that FWC (most of them?) are currently writing warnings for the mono box nets but will eventually enforce the rule. He said he was next to a guy using a mono net and he was using a poly net with identical results. BTW Capt. Rons folding nets are awesome! We saw very few up top in the lights Fri nite but the frame net saved the skunk and got us a gallon. Steve

    ThankTE="Nautical Gator, post: 813, member: 6"]OK this is the REAL SCOOP

    They just called me back and they said that
    There has been NO changes in the use of Frame Nets in the state of Florida,
    and they said it is still legal to use them.

    I hate when people spread false roomers with out checking on them first...

    So go out and shrimp.

    Very good news. So many people where I live think all shrimping is illegal in Pensacola. We have no shrimpers like there is on the east cost.
