Striper Gill Nets

Not sure if I'm allowed to post this or not but below is a petition that is being collected to ban gill netting bass in the Chesapeake. Not trying to start a debate or anything just putting it here for anyone interested.

Thanks! This could really be a great thing for the bass.

Yeah, I signed it on the other posting, around 1490 something. Gotta help, especially when you read about the violators.

awesome way to go guys! The public outcry in the chesapeake area has been pretty pronounced after all this has come into the light. I think a good petition like this could really help. There was an article in the Washington Post a couple days ago outlining whathas happened so far this season if anyone wants to google it.

I am in at 3905. For what good it will do. Hopefully with enough ruckus something positive will occur. I don't have much faith in the effectiveness of internet petitions or the legality of them, but maybe, just maybe, someone with some influence on the matter might be persuaded to take positive action.
