Default Recreational fishing? Yeah, thats going to be a thing of the past.

So you think we as recreational fishermen have a chance to get our fishing rights back on track? After looking at this site, there`s no way. It`s only going to get worse. Look at all the money, companies and individuals who are heading up the fight against the recreational fishermen.

Exactly. Government only has the power to regulate until the people get tired of it.
Look at how well prohibition worked.

Globalism at work

f/k all of them.
Rec fisherman account for less than 5% of fishing. Much less when you get to colder climates.

I couldn't get your link to work.

Here in California it's big Ag and the southern water districts. They are sucking the delta dry and destroying what wild Salmon runs there are left. Then they are trying to get bills pasted to eradicate the Strippers & Black Bass saying it's these non native species that are destroying the Salmon runs. Not pumping water south to irrigate alfalfa grown on sub par salt ridden farm land.

And yes I looked into getting out of this liberal hell hole, unfortunately I am 20 years into earning a pension with 10-15 years to go, too much time invested to pick up & leave.

You are assuming there will be a pension left to pay you out of in 10-15 years. I'd cut my losses and leave sooner rather than later. Move to florida, South Carolina, or Texas before it's too late.

I'm in NC and consider it a compromise since we have at least 3 seasons here and the taxes aren't terrible except for the 56c a gallon gas tax.

Seriously, vote for a president that does not have enviornmental activists as a major support wing. Conservation is good but not at the expense of god given rights.

Even quicker if you store your egg sinkers in the same ziplock bag.

I don't see how what you mean. prohibition is similar in many ways.

It was over turned because of public voice, the corrupt money fought to keep it banned because they made more with it banned than legal.
