new cod regs

The new regs are a setelement between a bunch of commercial fishermen, states reps and environmental groups.

There was zero representation in these closed doors meetings for recreational and commercial hook and line fishermen. If you believe the state reps are looking our for rec anglers, think again.

Case in point, Rod and reel hook commercial fishermen had a trip limit of 300lbs which is reduced to 200lbs in Aug. While Draggers and Gillnetters get a 100lb increase per day from 400lbs to 500lbs starting Aug.

Makes me sick also.
