the last party boat cod trip out of Montauk I was on, three weeks ago, every single Black Seabass caught was kept. They probably made up the bulk of the fish caught. Of course, they all had their swim bladders hanging out of their mouths when landed, so even if released would probably have died. It points out the weakness in both the regs and the enforcement.
I'm worried about the fisheries management. I want my kids to be able to go fishing w/o problems in 20 years. Are their any suggestions for USCG or DEC to help crack down on these people who break the law????? Those are the people who enforce these laws....right?
