Still nothing on that front yet. However, the bigger problem we may be faced with is outlined in my post below you. As if the stupid transport regs last year weren't bad enough last year, there may be NO HERRING USE at all here in the next couple of years! I don't see how these bastards can justify screwing the recreational fisherman over again and again. The numbers of herring used by us as fisherman are NOTHING compared to the numbers that are netted by those commercial fishing devils every year.
