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.
