A good start . When a similar regulation was passed to prohibit snagging of Great Lakes spawning salmon the snaggers countered by placing the weight several feet above the hook. This allowed them to "line" (polite for "snag") fish again by slowly dragging the trailing hook over fish or through concentrations "setting the hook" frequently. I have no idea if this technique would work on Boca Grande tarpon, but if it will you may be assured it will be widely employed by unethical anglers (cheaters).
