OK, so what a great golden tile season, we apparently have caught our 3019 goldens, and our 523 Snowy Groupers to we are done!
For myself, this has been the best Golden Tile fishing I have experienced in over 20 years. The fish were there, they bit on any tide, and the size was better than ever. At least they closed the commercials also. What do they get, 1000 times what we get?
And how the heck is Snowy grouper still pen for commercial fishing. We get only 523 of those fish and the comms can keep harvesting them?
What part of this makes sense? If we only get 523 snowys, how can that stock support any kind of commercial fishery.
Remember those numbers are for the entire SAFMC area of responsibility.
Good for the goose, good for the gander.
