Any Offshore Fishermen here?

Post by DaveM » Wed Feb 07, 2018 3:55 pm

I have a question I don't know the answer to and was hoping someone here would know.

Florida Fishing Regulations say:

Gulf of Mexico: These regulations require the use of a dehooking device when recreationally fishing for reef fish in the Gulf of Mexico. All persons aboard a vessel harvesting reef fish must possess and use non-stainless steel non-offset circle hooks when using natural baits.

Does this apply to Gulf waters beyond 9 nautical miles?
