Historic City News readers have an opportunity to come in, talk to biologists and let Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission staff know what they think about freshwater bass regulations during an open house in St Augustine on April 2.
Northeast Region Public Information Coordinator Joy Hill announced that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission began the public meetings for anglers around the state in late February to find out how they feel about bass regulations.
“This is an opportunity for anglers to provide their thoughts and ideas about Florida largemouth bass regulations,” said Allen Martin, regional freshwater fisheries biologist. “Should they stay the same? Should changes be made? You tell us.”
The public meeting will be held from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Gander Mountain located at 550 Prime Outlets Boulevard in St Augustine on April 2 and anglers are welcome to come into the open houses at any point.
“There’s no set schedule — you can come in for 10 minutes or stay for an hour,” Martin said. “We want people to let us know what they think about bass regulations and find that the casual format allows for that.”
