Couple of small fishes...

1. Mangrove Snapper

2. Redfish
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.

Both are.

But the little Mangrove snapper was just tiny, although legal. And the Redfish was waaaay undersize.  They have to be between 18 and 27 inches long.

Please explain. Are you not allowed to keep them when they are over 27" long?

Nope. That is the "slot-size". I can't find an official reason why, but I guess that less than 18 inches is juvenile, and over 27 inches is breeding size?
