  • Chester reports that it's a stay of her order. The appeal has yet to be heard. Don't celebrate too soon.

    Gary, as usual, is correct. We must continue the fight!

    At least it appears some sanity has temporarily reappeared... We must remain vigilant & keep up the pressure to keep these death traps out of our waterways !!!
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' , 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons, Limits, or Closures... Game Fish Status IS the Answer !!!

    There is no judicial precedent to this lowly circuit court ruling.
    Why did FWC suspend enforcing Florida law?

    If this gets remanded for further proceedings by appellate court
    I'm sure your demonstrative skills will go a long way with teaching the trial judge
    What she got wrong the first time.
  • Who, me? :grin

    This judge has a personal sympathetic agenda in this issue and has demonstrated it last year when she heard this issue. This time instead of attacking it on an administrative level and remanding it to an administrate hearing , where it should be heard, she pursued it's constitutionality . She is developing a reputation of challenging the state and legislature, as a firebrand. http://www.tallahassee.com/article/20131024/OPINION05/310240066/

  • She will eventually be shown for what she is.
    THERE SHOULD BE NO COMMERCIAL FISHING ALLOWED FOR ANY SPECIES THAT IS CONSIDERED OVERFISHED.

    Looking forward to putting this vitally important issue to bed.

    It will be good to get back to arguing about things like the tarpon sinkers. :)

    Read the Circuit Court order today.
    If I didn't know better,it reads like a mother's letter to her children, the mullet fishermen.
    It is personal to her.
    She ignores the plain meaning of the law and administrative rules and concludes anything other than a cast net is illegal.
    But, instead of stating FWC should enforce against all nets, she has decided to provide a pay day for the commercial netters.

    Didn't see anything in the Order addressing the ethics of taking all female mullet out of the ecological system before they have given birth.
    It is the roe that is valuable. Thus kill them before procreation.

    The do say north Florida is rural. Turn it up.....................

    There is a BIG fishing family with the name Fulford out of Cortez.... Generation after generation of them...

    I have not found anything linking her to that family.....

    But it just seems a little too ironic to me...

    Here ya go John, from a link Gary put up. Good read.

    Don't bother me none
    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.

    I know some Fulfords... And Bells.... OR knew... They were not too nice to me in the early 1990's

    I know Blue Fulford and his son Larry. Larry works capturing porpoises for various state and federal agencies, some are rescues.

    They are stand up folks and if they didn't like you, well, that probably speaks volumes.
