Default Golden Tiles closed season

Saw this in NC section but I believe this applies to us in SE Florida as well.
WHAT/WHEN:
  • The 2019 recreational fishing season for golden tilefish in South Atlantic federal waters will close at12:01 a.m. (local time) on June 17, 2019.Recreational harvest for the 2020 fishing year in South Atlantic federal waters will open at 12:01 a.m. (local time) on January 1, 2020.


WHY THIS CLOSURE IS HAPPENING:
  • The 2019 golden tilefish recreational catch limit is 2,316 fish. Reports indicate that recreational landings have reached the 2019 recreational catch limit.
  • According to the regulations, NOAA Fisheries must close the recreational sector when the recreational catch limit has been reached. This closure is necessary to protect the golden tilefish population.

Sure does man. If anyone wants to get rid of a Tanacom 1000 for cheap since they're worthless now... let me know. Shout out to everyone who posted a golden tile pic 7x a day on every social media and website they could, I mean how else are they getting their fishing reports to base the data off of.

Very good point. It is not like you have to call it in like Swordfish. How do they actually "guess" the recreational amount caught?

Same method they use on every other species, they multiply the number hit by the number of registered anglers.

Commercial:

  • Hook and line component: OPEN
  • Longline component: CLOSED March 14, 2019 (See Fishery Bulletin). Reopens January 1, 2020.
  • Size Limit:
    • Hook-and-line component - No size limit;
    • Longline component - No size limit
  • Trip Limit:
    • Hook-and-line component - 500-pounds (gutted weight)
    • Longline component - 4,000 pounds (gutted weight).

Yeah they really "care" about the population allright...
That's why the commercial trip limit is 500-pounds gutted...
How many whole fish is that per trip?
Gimme a break.

I asked them if the "reports" were publicly available...no response. Clowns

Anyone know if bluelines are more common than goldens in the palm beach area? Just picked up a Tanacom 1000 last week and waiting for Connley to finish my DD rod. Not sure if itís worth trying out at this point with the closure.

Come further South where you can fish for the BL's in State waters year round.

Commercial gets 97% of the share. I think they extrapolate our 3% based on the commercial catch records.

What’s crazy is the golden,blue line and snowy grouper all live in the same area. Blue line and snowy are open for now. So if you catch a golden it’s dead when you get it to the boat. You got to through it back. Crazy.

Whats worse is dead discards for the rest of the year this year will most likely come off of next years TAC.

They claim we over fished this year by 600%
I'll be surprised if we get any TAC next year.

The commercial guys get 97% of it. With that said I have never seen it in a fish market or seafood restaurant. So where is it going?

The majority of fish caught in the US gets exported. We import the majority of the fish we eat. How's that Tilapia?

Hey Ryan, Andy from Facebook with the Cape Horn LOL.

Yeah, I've seen videos on youtube where they are catching the tilapia out of the same water where all their human waste goes.
Freaking nasty!

MFGA (make fishing great again) - bullshit rules and accountability imposed on recreational anglers while the commercial and federal charter fleet rape and pillage. f&*k

Sector separation is total bullshit.

I've been fishing my entire life and Most of the fish at restaurants used in fish tacos I cant even pronounce or figure out what part of the world it comes from. Tilapia - eating crap off the bottom of ponds... yum... (no thanks).

Screw the charter and commercial guys, they aren't on our side. I'll be ordering chicken when I go out to eat.
