Default Re: Striped Bass Commercial harvest increase?

This is the second time in two years they have proposed this. Last year it was evident through public comment that the idea was unpopular. If it gets enough pub with the rec community hopefully it will be knocked down once again. The Management group is traditionally sensitive to commercial fishery needs. They will use data that states commercial harvest is far less than recreational harvest etc. etc. They never take into account catch and release data and have yet to propose limiting the recreational catch to one a day.
