Nick you don't have to always eat the fish. You can catch more than 1, just practice catch and release. We all like to eat the fish we catch but I am sure we enjoy pulling any kind of fish over the rail more whether its a throw back or not. I don't go fishing to eat, I go fishing because I enjoy it, eating the fish is just another added benefit.It's not worth it to me . 1 striped bass, catfish , white perch or hike down the bay?
We have tried to ban nets a few years ago and that went over like a lead balloon......... GaryYou must ban the nets and do a 5 year Moratorium. We banned the nets and the fishing is good, not great. I have seen a decline the past 17 years I have lived here. We have major Pollution from lake Okeechobee that we are trying to get the Core of Engineer's to solve.
