    Default A possible ray of hope?

    Many, including me, have questioned if we really can have an impact on Fisheries Management policy.
    We respond to the requests for e-mails.
    We contact our Senators, and Reps, and receive polite e-mails telling us they are aware of our concerns....

    But how do our opinions really get to affect policy?
    Or do they affect it at all?

    Here's a chance for you folks out there to get involved, without spending the gas or toll money. These webinars are growing in popularity as travelling gets more tenuous and expensive. Sent in by Finchaser, thanks!

    I feel that recreational fisherman kill to many bass.
    Whether for the table, pumping their chests, to win tournaments or to sell.
    The limits are way to generous.
    Guys like johnny bucktails, the charter boats, party boats, were killing 3 bass per person. This would happen if they found a concentration of bass, they would go and try to wipe it out.
    The new group "1 @ 32"" is a great start, but clowns like johnny bucktails or rip316 would never join that 1 @ 32 group, because they don't care about anything but killing their share of breeder size bass. And their share is what the limits are set on, and the people who set the limits are corrupt and really don't care that the Striped Bass population is in trouble.

    The book CAUGHT by Jeff Nichols, goes into a bit of detail on the recreational sale of Striped Bass.
    Seems to happen in the New York area.

    Those be my thoughts.

    Sorry but I dont agree with that. In Ma and LI a lot of recreationals sell their bass. I read part of that book caught and it talks about it. In NJ there are plenty of chinese restaurants and fish markets that will buy your bass. One time we went to a chinese restaurant in sea bright. The guy cooked a bass we caught. Then later he came by and said if we bring him more he would give us free meals. So he may not have exactly bought from us but he was actively looking to barter for bass.

    X2 have to ask if you live in maryland did you know a lot of the poaching goes on there. Never once did you see or hear of anyone selling? If you drive down rt 1/9, or rt22 in New Jersey or go over to Chinatown in NY you can find striped bass for sale. Mostly the asian produce and fish markets. I seen bass for sale in there.

    Good read by Charles Witek. Basically he says that even the best groups can get sidetracked as they get larger. He still suggests fining a grassroots group that appeals to you, and getting involved.
