FLORIDA SALTWATER FISHING REGULATIONS
The Naples Spearfishing League was fundamental in lifting the half-century ban on spearfishing in Naples, FL. Spearfishing was illegal in state waters, out to 9 miles, offshore of Collier County. This meant spearing lionfish was illegal offshore of Naples. Bill D'Antuono petitioned the public for reform on this old law designed to curb snook poaching from docks. The petitioned garnered 500 signatures was forwarded to the Commissoners of Collier County and then onto FWC and the State of Florida. Thank you for all your support and since then we have removed many lionfish from state waters of Collier County and the diving community as a whole has more than doubled.
