X2 on that. Don't leave Capt. Most of us like your reports and pictures.Greg, I have enjoyed your posts and actually learned something. The ignore button is an awesome feature. I hope u stay.
I have a friend who worked at Horn Point back when biologists netted stripers,took them to the lab,collected and fertilized the eggs,and then released the fingerlings.This was back in the 80's.He told me the biologists handled these fish very carefully.Most of the large fish aborted their eggs before they were fully ready to become fertilized.Sure the fish might have survived but not the eggs.Luckily in the 80's,when the ban came in effect, there were other fish to catch.Trout,blues,flounder,croaker,macks,and others.I remember the ban quite well.If the ban comes again what is left to catch.Nothing.Maybe a biologist could join this conversation.Just because it's legal does not make it right.Marijuana is legal but you want your kids getting high.
You know Tail I respect the folks on here that want to keep politics off the board. It seems silly to me that they now . insist that you can't voice your oppossing opinion even when it relates to fishing. I am no scientist but it seems to me that stressing out a fish on light tackle has some detrimental effect. I am with you. Leave them the hell alone during spawning season.You want to complain about rockfish, well, leave em alone.
So YOU have said your piece, but no one else should, Got it!Guys if you want to debate this, start a new thread. Don't drag it out on here. I have said my piece.
Fantastic. I just find it ironic that you do something (voice your contrary opinion to another poster) and then tell others not to do that same.yes im not going to further debate this on a fishing report thread, im done on this one. the respectful thing to do is to make a new thread if you want to discuss further. this is/was a place that greg was sharing fishing reports. some chose to derail it.
