It seems to me that the commercial boys don't want recreational fisherman out there to see that the past regulations have rebounded the stocks.Who would the regulators listen to then? Lobbyists? How many pounds do they shovel overboard after their 400lb quota is filled? More than what we catch i'm sure.We fish a day, their gillnets fish all week.We got to keep at it, talk to our reps. and congressmen[women], and hope for the best.I'll still go out of the Merrimac and motor the 20odd miles to Jefferies[if it stays open]for 5or7cod/haddock,plus the cusk and pollack, tag the smaller ones. As for fishing the small humps closer to shore, forget it, covered with gillnets all winter.Good fishing, Dave.
