I've only ever caught them for sport, never for bait. A limit of 15 or 20 surely wouldn't harm stocks except at Beatrice Hill...

Queensland fishos have their own limit on Bait, "Bag limit on yakkas, bag limit of 20 per person."

The limits for these and Spanish flag are absurdly low. Particularly the flag.

Tarpon are like Powertail of the surface. A pain in the bum.
Smile and the world smiles with you, fart and your all alone.

Yep, can't see tarpon being fished out even if there was no limit. Even if you put a price on their head.

Limits for the sake of having limits?
