Guilty Of and Saddened by Another Fishery
In the 70's. As a kid overfishing the runs and brooks of the PA mountains. We had a great childhood fishery of native strain brook trout. That is gone (endangered if not extinct).
In the 80's. Overfishing the weakfish spawns of the Delaware Bay. Dozens of 12+ pound fish was not uncommon in the day. Them days are over.
In the 90's. Trout fishing pristine waters throughout the rockies. Now owned by the wealthy and posted.
1980-2015. Working indirectly for the government and reeling in more than my share out of DC.
2015 til. Fishing Sarasota Bay. Being non-Flogrown, flushing my toilet and keeping the occasional sea trout for dinner. Hoping someday to keep my first snook, because I enjoy cooking and eating fish. Did that goober in the tower boat really need to speed thru that 10" deep healthy grass flat?
Off the soap box...
