I noticed that 88% of those who took the poll supported the C&R moratorium.

The Board of Natural Resources decision on steelhead

I realize this isn't "my" poll but I would prefer that the question read "Support decision to catch and release wild steelhead" instead of reading "Support decision to catch and release". The way I read it you are voting to either have catch and release on all steelhead or catch and retention of all steelhead. I know the difference but some people might not.

"Wild $teelhead C&R gives me a thrill, why don't we all make it the drill"

Having other boards remove it upon seeing that the polls are so lopsidedly in favor of C&R doesn't surprise me at all. The ones who pulled the poll were hoping that there would be a lot of support for there wanting to bonk wild fish. Hopefully the good folks of Forks will take note of the results of their poll and stop listening to those locals who yell the loudest.

Those polls didn't get yanked off the other sites...they just got moved. Both of those sites have separate forums for politics and government and the polls are still posted in those forums.

See you tonight.

I know, I was one of the moderators who moved one in question. We try to keep the fishing forum fishing, and the science, regulations in those areas. Even replied to the poster in question who incorrectly posted it, and he said thanks for me putting it in he correct spot (he thought it had been removed as well). But I moved it within minutes of it being posted. Plus, I took the poll while I was there. :D
