Yes , Saturday 16th at 5:00 am - you can keep one Rock over 28 inches ( no more slot ).

Not being wise a$$ but watch all those 36 to 40 inchers we have all been releasing vanish on Saturday.

Thanks Skip, I was pretty sure the season became more similar to last year 2 fish & only 1 over 28 with a minimum of 20" but seen no one comment on that.

Skip and Dash both right. Beginning Saturday we can keep a fish over 28" without worry of no-take slot, and you can keep smaller fish down to 20". Or you can keep two smaller 20"-28" fish if you like to eat those smaller ones.
