The last 20 years the light at the end of the tunnel was to retire and spend my days fishing and catching Stripers and Blues.
As I crept closer to that date now only a year or two away that light has dimmed signifgantly by pure greed, ignorance and corruption.
It was impossible not to notice the downward spiral the fishery was in (the last 4 years have been dismal at best). It's left me angry and bitter to the coms and greedy recs that take and take with one simple thought. "It's legal". Legal yes, most of the time but not always! Morally and ethicaly right? not In my opinion when things were clearly falling apart. My hope is that common sense wins the day and real permanant protection for the fishery is put in place.
With any luck I may still be alive and healthy enough to walk the beach and enjoy GOOD fishing again.
