It's 36 if you have a "directed" permit. Less if you only have an "incidental" permit.
Roger on the aggravation and stink. There are other requirements which I won't even get in to, but it's all we got left till grouper opens in May.
Can't pay the bills on a 300# limit of golden tile cause of the price of fuel and the distance we have to go for them.:mad: Sea Ya,Jo

What kind of gear do you guys use for tiles? Bandit gear or something else?

U can use your long line and retreiving davit if you dont have a bandit ;) I used to call that the "Jack machine" when jacks were worth something :???:

Aren't you essentially longlining with a bandit reel or am I thinking of something else? Certainly not miles of line out, but more than a few hooks.

No I had a regular long line spool on my boat. It was only a 4 mile spool though.

For jacks we would run 2 hooks many feet apart and just drop it like a bandit.

Roger. Me too (4 mi. reel).That's how we fish the snowy grouper wrecks when there's too much tide for the bandit and it takes 30-50# weight just to hold it down there........4 or 5 hooks (vertical)at a time on a stretched rig.;)Jo

Thanks, poor wording on my part. What I meant to ask is about the proper use of a bandit and whether it was similar to a longline drop only much shorter......

A bandit reel is just a hydraulic fishing reel and you have a fiberglass spring arm for a "rod". You drop a bottom rig like you would if you were, say sea bass fishing except it's usually a lot deeper, you've got more hooks, bigger hooks, circle hooks, and a lot more weight like a window sash weight, for example. And you use cable or mig wire on the bandit reel. It's bottom fishing w/ hydraulics.

Thanks, I found a few examples on youtube. Looks like they use about 15 hooks for most fish. Swivels on the mainline and ll clips. Semed like a pretty useful system.

Be careful with the hook count. I think over 10 is "long lining" if I remember right.
