Tony,:hysterical:What in the world was that all about:hysterical:eace:they should just shut down the striper fishery off va/nc for everyone completely! isn't that what was done with sea bass? now if your catching comm. we won't stop you. like the boat i was next to @ the 4th rocks that was bailing 2-3 a 60 yd pass in aug. must of caught @ least a 100 in about an hour. faulty data? what does that matter? don't really care if you've got a $3k boat payment or a family to feed. your bad luck that we passed the mag./stevens act. go find something else to do. so what if the rec/charter side brings in 1000 times more $$$ in taxes than the comm.? we spotted a plover sitting on the back of a striper off the coast of NC. shut it down. it's easy to sit back in your comfy chair on a keyboard & pass judgement on people. illegal in this country has become a "pick & choose" word. it"s easy to get "outraged" @ charters under investigation. don't forget your still innocent until PROVEN guilty. i got a call from a large roofing co. asking me what i would charge them to go back & fix problems with roofs they put on cause they couldn't "communicate" with their crews, they didn't speak english. for every "holier than thou, wish they were thrown under the jail" poster i wish they would pass the obama/gov. act that made your job partially illegal. wonder how you'd feel then? "let he who is without sin cast the first stone" remember that one?
