    scam? the new rec season with the potential to harvest 250,000 lbs per day...

    Unless the MS act is thrown out therse won't be another federal rec season for 5 +years.
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    What does that tell you?
    Based on the cataclysmic shift with the Gulf Council appointments today, I would say it bodes well for reasonable and rational fisheries management for our Gulf of Mexico fisheries for a change.

    It all makes sense now. Our seasons are being set based on " POTENTIAL to harvest " numbers.

    Whose numbers? EDF's? Good one.

    Anyone who claims that a 39 day private rec season is going to crash the Gulf of Mexico red snapper fishery is either smoking crack, or worse, getting drunk on the EDF Koolaid!

    Please explain.

    Because when I see a bunch of seafood producers in love with a candidate, it puts me on edge.

    Which of the new Gulf Council appointees were supported by a bunch of seafood producers?

    You are probably referring to the new head of NMFS - Chris Oliver. According to Jim Donofrio, Mr. Oliver is going to do the right thing for recreational fishermen and judging from the actions of people appointed by Trump this far, I have to say I am encouraged. Mr. Oliver is from Texas and is an avid recreational fisherman, and understands the issues at play here.

    Best,
    Tom

    The CFA fully supports and endorses Chris Oliver.

    Yes, I was referring to Oliver, and I hope you are correct -- but I will suggest it's a bit more than an understanding of the issues that we should hope for, and to that end we shall see....
