The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) advises anglers that the recreational harvest
season for spotted seatrout in North Florida will close for one
month to help maintain spotted seatrout abundance.
The harvest and possession of spotted seatrout is
prohibited from Feb. 1 until March 1 in all waters north of the
Flagler/Volusia counties line to the Florida-Georgia border in the
Atlantic, and north of a line running due west from the westernmost
point of Fred Howard Park Causeway (which is about 1.17 miles south
of the Pinellas/Pasco counties line) to the Florida-Alabama border
in the Gulf.
All other areas in Florida remain open to the
recreational harvest of spotted seatrout under current FWC
regulations, which are available online at MyFWC.com/Fishing (click
