  9. I did not say they weren’t sending in the reports. What I said was the reports show that only around 25% of striped bass tag holder report catching any bass. Problem is since fish aren’t tagged until sold we have to depend on honesty of the reporter to actually know what was caught. If it is required to tag when caught and the tags need to be accounted for it would lessen the chance of fish not being reported.
  10. While it may seem like a minor point I think it causes under counting of fish caught under the commercial regulation. On page 34 of the draft under tag timing it allows for commercially caught fish to be tagged at harvest or at point of sale. The rule should require tagging at harvest to ensure all fish caught under commercial regulations are counted against the commercial quota. Currently in Mass they tag at sale which then depends on honesty for counting fish that are not sold. Mass regulations allow for keeping fish for personal use and bartering. Then you have the two fish rod and reel shore license for cheap money that to me is a license to steal. Only a small percentage of Mass commercial license holders report catching fish.
  11. I use the gossa SW6000 or VS150. I would not recommend using a VR175, at least for me, since the rotor hits my knuckles when reeling unless I’m really careful.
  12. Per the ODM Facebook page on 11/18 they have the Genesis back in stock and will be sending them to the shops.
  13. I’ve used the 10’ Genesis for the last two years and found it to be the most versatile rod I’ve ever owned. I fish mainly rocky areas and have gained greater faith in the rod lifting strength with experience. No problem lifting five pound schoolies.
