I try not to get on a soap box to often, but there are a few things that I think as a recreational fisherman we all need to be aware of and have our opnions heard. One thing that is currently going on now in NC is HB 353, which would make Redfish, Speckle Trout and Striped Bass gamefish only. With the recent events in the Mid-Atlantic this winter of all the Striper kills by irresponsible commercial fisherman should be enough to get this bill passed. Maybe just maybe if NC can get this ball rolling other states will stand up and take charge. Someone has to be a voice for the fish. What better than us the rec. anglers, guides and Captains to get involved.
