There are fish that are caught there , but think of all the fish that are caught in other places along the Northeast coast? You can't close them down.
As far as C&R goes, If you want to do that , thats fine , but if the next guy wants to take one home for table fair thats fine also.
A lot of fishermen release fish and they end up dieing anyway. They are going to be caught and some will die. Thats fishing ? If you don't want this to happen, don't fish.
We don't need more rules and fees as far as I am concerned.
When I think back over the year and remember all the Red Tides that went on, up and down the Atlantic and Gulf coast,, with the dead fish all over the beaches I get sick
Then, think to myself, How many Fishermen it would take to catch all those fish?
Tons and Tons of dead fish on the beaches washed up every week, and then you worry about a fishermen taking home a fish?
I alway said I believe in cycles? maybe you don't? But thats me.
