Everybody is going to have an opinion on how to make it better. There will always be that person or persons who will do something completely legal but not favor of the end result. For example culling a 20" fish to maybe get a 24" fish while live-ling in the hot summer. So now they shut down certain weeks in the summer to lessen the impact. That only helps if mother nature coincides with the shut down. That didn't happen two years ago and there were a lot of dead keeper size fish floating down the bay. It wasn't illegal but not good for the fish.Isn’t that happening now, Mike?
When I'm fishing I take as much care as possible when handling fish whether kept or released. A 19" rockfish goes in my cooler because I may not get another one. A 19" is better than nothing.
