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/Rules (click on “Fishing – Saltwater”).
