New Data from revision to MIPR protocol

MIPR protocol has been changed to eliminate phone calls as the measure of effort for the private rec anglers.  Not sure how they do it now but the impact on red snapper landings has been revised by a huge margin in favor of the private angler.  Holds for all states.  Check it out.  We may yet get a longer season.

    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.

    Part of the reason is they introduced the myfishcount app in the Atlantic and they actually have real, scientific data to be able to look at. All recreational anglers should be logging their trips with that app. It helps. The fwc just started using the iangler Gulf Red Snapper app for Gulf anglers and it should help them make better decisions in that area as well.

    Fish Apps work great but do not get us to the finish line 1.1 million pounds for Florida. Recreational anglers can do better than MRIP surveys.

    Time to change the best available data.

    It proves how skewed the allocations are.

    The new survey by the NMFS is called Fishing Effort Survey. Recreational anglers should be pushing for new stock assessments using the FES survey, In an off the record meeting the states voted not to use new survey for stock assessment till 2020.
