We're headed to Big Pine in a couple of weeks, and would like to get a summary of the new gear regs in the Keys.

I found plenty of info on species limits and licensing, but I hear there are specific regs on circle hooks, non-stainless hooks, de-hookers, and venting tools. Anything else ? Has anybody found a "kit" for sale ?

Can anybody point me to a quick summary of what I need to know before I get there ?

Thanks !

In-line circle hooks for snapper & grouper you harvest.
Any kind of a hooker is ok even just a set of pliers. They did away with the mandatory "Acr" style.
Any kind of deflater also qualifies.
