I would personally like to see the other option of 17" and a season from april 20 to dec 31.
I throw back almost all fish that are under approx 18-19 inches anyway. It isn't too often that I get to go out for them, so a longer season is what I would like, so I have more opportunities to go. However, this would almost put the anglers who only have shore access almost out of the picture...how many 17" fluke do we see caught off bulkheads, beach, etc?
Whatever we end up with, I'm going to try making the most out of it.
