The new speckled trout size and daily creel limits go into effect today.
The new regulations are as follows:
- Size limit: 13-20 inches total length, only two fish included within the daily creel limit can be greater than 20 inches total length
- Daily Creel: 15-fish daily limit per angler
- Charterboat guides and crew will not be able to retain a creel limit while on a charter trip but may engage in fishing
LDWF Fisheries Outreach staff has developed a video on best handling practices for speckled trout. Following these tips will help reduce discard mortality for released trout. https://youtu.be/iqHuqIM-j0o?si=klBfA89DcfKEfUOn
