Default Good Ol' Days

Remeber when you could drop a line in that puddle of water called the Atlantic Ocean without registrations or licenses? Ya know way back when, like last year. Share your tales and or lessons learned from the days before the government required you to tell them about it and charged you for the privilege.

LOL those were the days indeed!

I don't have a problem with registering and having a lisence in MA IF:

> They use the registration data to increase representation of the recreational fishing communicaty in fisheries management

> Any money collected goes to fisheries preservation

> The cost is low enough for someone who doesn't make a lot of money to afford

> It is inforced in a way that helps punish all of the poachers out there who won't bother to get a liscence anyway

However, given that all four of those are a big "IF" I'm sceptical as well....

Roger that! on all your points. The new head of the NOAA is not a friend to the Rec.

I'm sure they wouldn't want 5 years of data on 1 report

If they had five years of data from you there would be a moratorium on Sea Robins next year!

I was talking last night with a guy who used to fish for cod in Mass in the late 60's and 70's. He talked about catching cod off the surf in Mass, using clams. Imagine that...

Cod? Surf? Catching? No,no,no you must have misheard him, surely no such thing ever happened. Trust me you can never trust a fisherman.

Massfisher, I hear ya on that.

IMO if things continue down the path like they are today, with more restrictions, higher fees, and less access for fishermen, we may be talking about 2009 as the "good old days" less than 10 years from now.

They (The NOAA) have to know that getting true stock assessments from an angry mob of anglers will go down in flames. They will get nothing out of me except my begrudged money.
(Not that I catch a bonaza pile each year)

"However, I am not married to the particular language in my bill. I am open to amendments that will solve the problem or make it easier to accept. For example, I think the commercial people should be compensated for their losses.
It is estimated that the cost of such a program would be about $500,000 to replace the profit made by the commercial striped bass fishermen. This money could come out of the revenue generated by saltwater licenses or a stamp for striped bass on the license."

State Rep. Matthew Patrick represents the 3rd Barnstable District in the Massachusetts House.

quote is about gamefish status for stripers in mass

<insert star wars empire theme music>
And so it begins.....
Have you thanked your overlords today?
