We're rapidly approaching the day. I would think we'd have more chatter on this, but I'm hearing nothing.  Couple guys I spoke with on the canal never heard a word of it.

So is the comm season really closed?

Opens in a month.. and if the canal is going to be off limits, I'm not sure why they would delay releasing this fact if it is already established policy.

Last I heard they were waiting for legal verification, once that was accomplished the 90 day emergency moratorium would go into effect June 24th.

Here’s the real question, are they going to enforce it?

I think it's concerning that they haven't made a statement yet.  I'm not a fan of commercial guys but it's kind of scummy to wait until the last minute this is their livelihood after all.

This is fairly regular when it comes to fishing related rules and regs and in some cases goes past the dates proposed.

4 fish a week for the summer should not be someone’s livelihood 

Edited by ged
2 comm days x 2 fish a day

If prices go like last year 4 30 pound bass a week could be plenty to live on for a week

The usual crowd. The only thing this will do is make it easier to spot the poachers on commercial days.

Doubt this years price/lb will be anywhere near what last year's late summer price was...not until restaurants are full bore, south of us....

$5lb x 30lb = $150 per fish. Before gear, gas, ice, state tax, federal tax, etc. 

 

What are you really bring home with 4 fish a week?
