Florida Limits Yellowtail Snapper at 10, Police Said This Fisherman Had 107

State fish and wildlife cops doing catch inspections on Sunday found a man in the Florida Keys with 107 yellowtail snapper, according to the police.

The state limit for this fish is 10 per person. Seafood fans love it for its sweet, mild, flaky fillets.

According to a statement sent to the Miami Herald/FLKeysNews.com by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, police caught Duvier Lorenzo Rodriguez, 47, with the over-the-limit catch near a home in the city of Marathon in the Middle Keys.

The tweet below confirms the news:

When asked again, the office did not give any more information about the arrest.

The Marathon resident Lorenzo Rodriguez could not be reached for comment. Records from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office show that he was put into the Plantation Key jail around 11 p.m. on a misdemeanor charge of being over the limit.

He was also given a ticket because his ocean fishing license was out of date, according to a statement from the FWC. Around 1:30 a.m., he was let go with a court date.
