2 fish or Game Fish?

Why is this business about 2 fish per day getting so much support here, while an effort to reintroduce the idea of making striped bass a gamefish coast wide (Stripers Forever - Brad Burns) hasn't even been mentioned anywhere on there boards?

I've seen Al Ristori fight for recreational fishermen before, and it seems to me he knows what he's doing.....because it reminds me of another type of negotiation - municipal union contracts.

They know pretty much what they are going to get before the negotiations even start.

So, when the negotiations start, you ask for a 10% raise, and the city offers 0%. After all the catfighting, you get 5%.

I've seen from many years ago, that Mr. Ristori works the same way, and it makes sense to me. He knows darn well that they are not going to make it a recreational-only fish, he's a smart man.

Look at what the commercial fishermen ask for. If they got what they asked for, there would be no more fish for anyone.
