  1. I guess not. Your photo looks a lot like a guy named john who went to my high school who also joined the armed services. Sorry to bother you!
  2. I'm not a fan of carrying over the quota. Kind of a snowball effect, make a bad situation worse.
  3. Thank you to everyone who participated! We had a pretty good turnout with 1,302 comments total, mostly in opposition to the rule. There was some debate but everyone kept things civil and it didn't turn it into a shouting match. Thank you all! Without further Adieu... The winner of the raffle, chosen at random by post number is: #55 @Bmackerel Please PM me your mailing address and I will send you a couple of D-rings for your surf belt. They are made with 316 SS rings, heavy duty webbing, and 135# test military grade thread. Thanks again everyone!
  4. @FlatWing Based on watching the website for a while, its slow. 929 of 1,115 have been accepted but the remainder have not necessarily redacted, just not reviewed. It took my comment several days to show up and this was a holiday weekend which will slow things down a bit more. Your comment seems well within the guidelines of what they should accept.
  5. We might, the fish and the ecosystem don't. We're at 1,115 comments right now and they were hard fought. 3 threads on this forum, emails to magazines/journals, and dm's to well followed IG accounts. Thanks to @Nick F for help with that. I'm not going to lament or feel defeated, I'm going to keep pushing for signatures and hope that you and everyone here will do the same. Tell your friends and family who support your hobby. Thanks to @TimS for including this in an announcement on the home page, this gained more support over the weekend than in the previous couple weeks.
  6. Thanks! I really wanted to see 1000 comments and it looks like we are at 1070 this morning! Keep this going, tell your fishing friends!
  7. Reminder: Comments close on Nov 19th, make yours today. It's time to stop "caring" and to start acting! Thanks all!
  8. That's a shame. I hope that the amount of comments opposing this change helps send a message to regulators. Hoping to get the number well over 1000.
  9. Thanks! This is the first step down a very slippery slope. Once this area is opened it will only be a matter of time before the entire EEZ is under attack.
  10. It takes a day or so, they are reviewed before being posted. No profanity is allowed Keep those posts clean everyone!
  11. I think that we should keep the EEZ closed to striped bass fishing (if you feel the same way, comment here: We should also apply the reductions CWitek mentioned in the Chesapeake bay, the conservation eq., and the shared commercial quotas. Additionally, I'd like to see a slot rule. Slot rules have been argued to death here but I think it's the right thing to do (you did ask for an opinion). I have friends who think that rec. striped bass should have a tag program, similar to com. striped bass.
  12. Hi, We are only at 320 comments per the NOAA website. Please also consider sharing this on whatever social media platform you use. I was wrong! 539, looking for 1000+! Thanks!
