Default Changes for Alabama

Just got this in an e-mail. Looks like some significant changes could be in store.

The only change I'm not happy about is the snapper/reef fish endorsement. It's half the cost of a saltwater license. I think it's a better way to get a count of how many people might be snapper fishing, but why charge so much($10)?

I don't mind paying an extra $10 a year if it leads to better data.

Unfortunately, it is about money. Alabama just legalized deer baiting for $15/yr. It's about new money for ALDCNR. If it lead to a more realistic limit on AL snapper that would be great. AL, unlike any other state, has a very aggresive reef program and we control more snapper than our "shoreline" would indicate.

If it’s free you’ll get everyone and their brother to grab a permit and it dilutes the participation data. Also it’s $10. That’s less than 3 gallons of fuel at the marina, or a pound of cigar minnows. I’d happily pay more than that to get better data to make seasons less restrictive.

I just have doubts this will lead to an increase in fishing days for us. I think charging $2 would accomplish getting better data. We all know that if a fishery is truly stressed, commercial fishing should be shut down.
