ASMFC decides to keep F=.30

Just posted over at completely outrageous!

Apparently the motion was proposed by the NY delegate, and Maine and NH were the only states to oppose the motion.

Wow that's pretty fresh info, the asmfc nor cca site didn't have anything up yet on the decision.

Well if that isn't a good reason to get more people into C&R angling I don't know what is.

If their estimates are correct, F=.20 would have put 125,000 15+ year MONSTERS into the region before I retired, who knows what kind of giants I could be chasing by the time I did retire and had the time!

If bait required circle hooks, if umbrella rigs were only allowed one or two hooks instead of <n>, if keeper meant a limited number per year per person and a slot limit, barbless was required, or if commercial and charter regs were brought into line to achieve these goals... would we enjoy our sport any less? I doubt it.

It's too bad when we have a chance to make things better we don't!
