Many different species of fish including snook, catfish, and tarpon were among the victims. Things were so severe that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has banned fishing for keeps on snook until September and tarpon until the end of March. If you have your winter fishing excursion already planned youíll still be able to fish, but just remember itís catch and release only.
If you just need to hit up Florida but want to abandon the camping plans, there are still some hotel options. However, thereís some kind of football game going on in a week, so tents might still be the best option despite the stink.
