    Honestly had I hoped they would close it for at least two years to EVERYONE......I can eat catfish. They're putting a bandaid on a mortal wound.

    Won’t do any good to shut down unless they close commercial flounder too, and that will never happen. So, it’s just a big continuing circle to let commercial continue and recreation takes the fall.

    I agree, touchy subject but seems obvious to me, money talks and BS walks...

    I know I've mentioned it before but I work in a controversial area of expertise. Hydraulic Fracturing. People hate us. I've had people tell me, albeit online, that they hope I die. I always tell them since they don't have a life if they hang around long enough eventually I will. But my pint is without demand for oil and gas I wouldn't be there. If people quit driving and buying plastics etc or bought all electric vehicles etc there would be no need for what I do. Same thing goes for the seafood industry. I knew a guy willing to pay $500 to have king crab shipped from Alaska for a party. Captain George's is full every day. So is Dirty Dick's. If people didn't eat so much there wouldn't be a need for commercial fishing. Demand drives the business.

    Regulations won't stop anyone from taking undersized fish. same as gun laws. The abiding will follow and all else won't. Cops can't be everywhere all the time.
