What is the difference??????
I had time today. To sit down and read the feb issue of the Chesapeake Angler Magazine. Their in the middle of it was something that really bothered me. It made me ask myself this question. what is the difference between commercial fishing and tournament fishing? In the mag. they had a number of pages devoted to striper tournaments, up and down the east coast. I was shocked at the number of big fish brought to the scales in the name of tournament. I had to say. Their is no difference. Both are using the natural resources that belong to everyone to make money. So their is no difference. So how can any of them in those tournament be so two faced as to call for stripers to be made into a sport fish? At least the cammercial fisherman is making a living for his family. The tournament fisherman is just making a profit off of our natural resources. That to me is two faced as hell. So for any sport fisherman to call for a ban on cammercial fishing for stripers. He must also call for a ban on tournament fishing for them. You can't have it both ways. Either their both allowed or both ban. So you guys maul this over in your heads. But think about it first before you just jump.
