    Growing up here and being on the water my entire life (still work on the water) (father was a commercial fisherman) I can tell you my observations are that the gill net ban has been a great success for Florida with much larger numbers of Mullet, Trout, Reds and Snook here now then when I was growing up. Don't get me wrong there are other issues that must be dealt with and hopefully we can deal with them, but this was a great step forward.

    From 5 million pounds of mullet harvested with gill nets to 1.3 million?
    Give or take a million, The Florida Department of Agriculture has it logged at 9 million lbs harvested last year.

    Sure, anytime a user group is eliminated the share of the pie for other groups expands.

    If we could send all the transplant back home, maybe our springs would flow again.
    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.
