Maybe this says something, maybe it doesn't but just look at the numbers of fish caught and the years totals.....what happened here.

What's with the steady decline of anglers from the very beginning? Of course the the 2012 hit with Sandy is there, but it isn't a completely picture if you're just looking at total fish; you really need to look at fish/angler, not that it paints that much better of a picture. It looks like blues took the biggest hit by far.

In the year 2010 and 2011 minimum weigh in for Bass 34 “ and Blues  32”

Past 3 or 4 years 28” each 

Prior to 2010 minimum weigh in was less than 28”

This would certainly affect the numbers in this sheet significantly

Great chart. I think the best way to look at this is from 2000 till today. Obviously the regs have changed between now and than but not so greatly where you cant draw some conclusions...Lot of variables in those early days of the 50s n 60s. But if you look at 2000 the catch ratio was about 1 bass per 3.5 anglers. 2018 it was 1 bass per 19 anglers. Pretty dramatic. I was fishing the other day in Seabrght (not spot burning because I caught jack) and was thinking to myself, this place was an amazing place to fish. Now it's like an empty parking lot. Just nothing most of the time. Occassionaly theres an Ok bite,but very rare.. Replenishment is no doubt the #1 culprit of this downfall.
