sorry but I wouldn't be keeping something and posting it online unless I knew for sure I wasn't doing anything ILLEGAL .

Straight from the Louisiana site.

All Louisiana state waters seaward to the gulfward boundary of the Louisiana Territorial Sea shall be closed to the recreational and commercial harvest and possession of all sharks between April 1 and June 30 of each year.

So that Mako is ILLEGAL and really small

Well the crew and yourself fishing sure dont care about the laws that's pretty obivious.

Sharks for years have been heavily limited to what you can keep.

Not a keyboard cowboy. I have probably seen and caught more fish than you ever will. I just believe the laws are there for a reason and I'm sure not posting pics of a Shark that is out of season and to small online for everybody to see.

Now days when you hook a fish the reel needs to connect to a satellite and perform a probability assessment of what is on the other end and provide the likelihood of being able to keep it.

The rules and limits are so convoluted.

I worked in the credit card industry for years and the irony of fisheries management is that on the financial(banking and credit cards) side everything is supposed to be so simple a 5th grader could understand and protect the consumer........yet on the fisheries side the consumer is the bad guy and it’s so complex you need mobile apps and books to decipher.

All these regulations do get a little crazy at times. We went offshore Friday and I was originally planning on catching triggerfish and AJ's. Luckily I checked the night before and saw that AJ was closed (or never opened)?

Have a question for ya'll Louisianians..... In LA state waters shark season is closed and the minimum size limit for Mako is listed at 54". According to gulf council HMS Mako season is open in federal waters and size limits are 71" and 83". So what does that mean exactly. You can catch one over 71/83" in the gulf but you cannot bring it back through LA state waters? Also, if you catch one after June in state waters he only has to be 54"? Am I interpreting this right?

Any reports from Saturday?

We we had a great trip on the new Tideline! Went down to thunder hawk Friday night and smashed some blackfin. Couldn’t buy a bite Saturday! Weather got a bit sporty Saturday and into the night. Not much current and scattered grass for miles! If it ever could form up it would be a nice weedline

We got up Sat morning and radar looked worse than we were hoping. Decided to stay close picked up 6-8 b liner, 4 mangrove and 2 rock hind grouper. Started heading in at 10:45 after I got a severe weather alert from my SiriusXM weather. Horizon in a distance didn’t look bad. Radar was a lot of red and yellow. Made it a couple miles out from red pass before we got hammered. Many of the charters were back with in an hour or so from us. Curious of how people did east and south. I heard Friday was a good day.

Left Saturday out of GI at 615AM , ran to the west, lots of broken up grass patches. Epic storm hit about 10AM so we lost some time hiding behind a drill ship. Started dropping lines at 1130. Picked up at 320PM and hit one or two platforms in shallower looking for a Warsaw, but the storms started building again, so shagged a$$ while we could.

11 Barrel
4 Yellow Edge
3 Snowies
1- Tile Fish
and a Black Belly Rose Fish.

We left Friday out of Destin around noon , caught a few blue runners out in front of the beach , headed southwest to the 40 break to try an pick up a wahoo , highspeed for maybe an hour , nothing , water temp was 75 . Headed to the squiggles after that ( had a report of big tuna there ) , saw a school of Bonita’s on the way , stopped and caught one . pulled meat at the squiggles for an hour or 2 nothing , no sign of life there . The sun started going down so we made a 28 mile run to the sword grounds . Drifted all night , ended up with 2 blackfin and one sword . Dropped a squid down first thing that AM in 1700ft , 2 1/2 hours later brought a shark up , let it go . Saw a shrimp boat , ran over there and pulled meat around it for an hour , nothing no sign of life . Headed back in, stopped at the break again to try for a wahoo , nothing again, back in by 3 . Not much sign on top for us ...but we got what we went after (sword) so mission accomplished.

From the other boats around us who were east, there wasn't much activity. Couple boats had come from Mars/Ursa area and were at West Vela with us, but no reports.

We caught a couple juvenile YFT on the jig, but no bites on chunking. Never marked any good fish either.

Pulled the Rip out of Venice Saturday and caught a bunch of Chicken Dolphin and a 10 pound one. Thunderstorm ran us back in early so didn't get to spend much time.
