Tallahassee open house to get input on bass regulations

Tell us what you think about freshwater bass regulations.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) freshwater fisheries biologists are looking for angler input during an open house in Tallahassee on April 9. The Tallahassee open house comes on the heels of a series of others held around the state. 

“This is an opportunity for anglers to provide their thoughts and ideas about Florida largemouth bass regulations. Should they stay the same? Should changes be made? You tell us,” said Allen Martin, regional freshwater fisheries biologist for the FWC.

Open houses are available for the public to come in, talk to biologists and let FWC staff know what they think.

“Anglers are welcome to come into the open house at any point. There’s no set schedule. You can come in for 10 minutes or stay for an hour,” Martin said. “The open house format is casual and for angler input about bass regulations only. We want people to let us know what they think.”

The April 9 open house in Tallahassee is at Academy Sports and Outdoors, 3122-9 Mahan Dr, from 5- 8 p.m.
