    In the Farnsworth inshore pictured below. Can I fish in here if I’m strictly trolling or spear fishing for the species of finfish listed, which includes yellowtail?

    I believe the only thing questionable in that zone is anchoring.

    I am likely wrong but I thought there was an issue with anchors and the coral?

    It has been brought up before,the sport boats and 6 pk anchor there a lot.Like I said you need to be careful what is on board if you friendly Dept comes bye.Most dont anchor as you have a very high chance of loosing your ground tackle.Tom
