Plea to the NMF
Please, please, please DO NOT SCHEDULE OUR OPEN RED SNAPPER SEASON, if we get one this year, on the Atlantic coast during the months of July and August. Anyone who has any experience fishing this coast knows this is the red snapper egg bearing season. Last year, during your ill conceived one day open season, most all the fish were full of roe. So, last year, in your endearing and "scientific" effort to save the "endangered" red snapper, you allowed us to keep one fish each and killed many hundreds of future fish. Nice piece of species protection science you guys! PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THIS ERROR AGAIN.
