Snook season came to a close yesterday and gag grouper recreational harvest closes not long after -- December 4. The FWC no longer requires anglers to carry a venting tool when fishing for reef fish -- they are leaving it up to the fisherman to determine the best way to release the fish unharmed. Capt.
