As I was fishing for porgies over the weekend it occurred to me that I had to get the most out of my enjoyment of fishing for these species because starting on September 15 I would have to stop for a two-week hiatus. Normally I would not mind if the season was over and we were helping to conserve the species. But in this case we are not doing anything of the sort. Instead, party boats are out there during this period cleaning up on the humpback run while the rest of us have to sit on the sidelines and wait our turn. There seems to be something inherently wrong about that concept. Porgies this season have been immensely abundent and there just seems no rhyme or reason why we recreational fisherman have to bear the burden of being blocked out of some great fall fishing. I wonder if anyone feels the same way.
