Limit On Speckled Trout Approved

Mississippi marine officials have approved a 13-inch limit on speckled trout in the three coastal counties.

The action yesterday (Tuesday) was a slight revision to limits put in place in December when the Commission on Marine Resources voted for a 13-inch limit in Harrison and Hancock counties and 14-inch limit in Jackson County.

The 13-inch limit now applies to all three counties.

Recreational fishermen had supported a 14-inch limit.

Scientists with the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources had advised against the change.

The new limit will go into effect February 16.
