I asked if they were going to check for AJs when the season ended and they said that they were. I don't think we are going to risk it.
If they find a violation do they write the citation or notify TPWD? Just curious how that process works.

Is lesser AJs open? If so, just target those smaller versions.

If you were checked at the jetties and you weren't over the state snapper limits there's not much they could do. I'm not saying break the law but once you're back in state waters you're good to go as long as you don't have more than four fish per person or any under 15 inches.

Texas red snapper season is open, so odd they were specifically looking for red snapper at the jetty, well within State waters. Curious if they tracked yall from FED waters?

I doubt they tracked us. They were running from boat to boat at the end of the jetties. I guess we will never know, we had been up a long time and didn't ask many questions.

We did catch several snapper fishing for AJs. We got tired of catching snapper just to have to throw them back and gave up on AJs in the middle of the night. The AJs we did catch were caught while trolling. That is a blast!

That's why you have to do the 8.888 mile safety stop for 20 minutes.

If they were running from boat to boat at the end of the jetties... looking for red snapper.. they couldn't prove where you caught them.... (Snaps) If they stopped you at 10 or 15 Miles (From the Beach) then they could bust your bubble.... I guess I didn't get checked because I saw them pulling every body over from the TCD boat ramp.. I just cruised on over there, showed them our life jackets and told them I didn't feel like being chased down... they laughed, said thanks and haulled it after the next boat...lol

Just nuts. Boat hasn't even been damp in 5 months. I bet I haven't boxed an AJ in 4 years as the season has been closed when I've bottom fished. I don't enjoy eating them anyway, but many of my crew does. Just a shame these fisheries are being so ridiculously managed.
