Believe it or not, but I had to leave one of the white perch areas because of rock fish on almost every cast.
You don't have to leave the area. It was my choice. But If the fish police seen me catching rock fish almost every cast fishing for perch, he or she would say, Sir If you cast that lure again you will get a ticket. I know this because it has happened to me at the Kent Narrows.So we have to leave a spot, if fishing for other fish, cause the rock accidentally bite you lure ? That's not right.
yep getting as bad as waterfowl regs.I don't need to worry about it.
Didn't even launch my boat yet this year because of the stupid regulations - and I only C&R the majority of the time.
