New S.C. Saltwater Rules

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has announced new limits on popular saltwater fish. The new regs cover among others, black drum, gray trout and redfish:

Red Drum (spot tailed bass; redfish)
3 per person per day Must be 15 inches Total Length or greater, and equal to or less than 23 inches Total Length maximum.
These new state fisheries laws were adopted primarily to support a proactive and precautionary approach in natural resources management to help deal with increasing fishing pressures and environmental stresses placed on South Carolina’s marine finfish resources associated with coastal growth and development.
Here is a link to the press release via the SCDNR site. Of course you could just put them back.
