It's official, they have released the Regs that will go into effect August 24 2017. For more info here's the link on the full Regs.
As for me, I only catch them on hook and line (targeting them) so this is tough for us but I think as far as spearing goes it will give them a chance. Opinions?

    The key is the commercial limit being dropped. Locally they get hammered by the commercial guys. The rebound I think will be massive and the limit will increase from one to two or so quickly.
