Once again the hook&line fisherman is the scapegoat. Unrealistic fluke ,possible seabass and porgy and pending blackfish restrictions are the result of the ordinary angler having no clout with the higher ups who make unscientific decisions based on flawed data and inaccurate studies. A fishery is not going to really be affected by the hook&line fisherman but it makes the committees look like they are doing something even thogh we are not the problem. Recreational fisherman vote and spend alot of money in order to catch our meager allotment of fish. If enough people write to their representatives and complain maybe we can make a differnce but just crying about the unfair treatment the recreational fisherman gets will get us nowhere. We are not the cause of the problem how can we be the solution.
