We have provided numerous viable solutions over the years with virtually ZERO response from the feds - it's to the point that it is clear they are not truly interested in improving the data - just implementing a privatization scheme. The only route at this point is to get a federal judge to file an injunction to put a halt to this whole scheme until there is a looksey under the covers here.
Count me in, i would be happy to donate to an organization that has a lawyer ready to go. If/when they shut the rec angler out, yet the commercial boats still operate, there will be a mess of litigation to be had.

Just asking why there would be an additional cost the angler?
Jim You have hit the Nail on the Head It's all About the MONEY!!, and Guys It's not so Much the Government {As Much as I Hate Them} It's the Commercial Guys That are Screwing things Up Think about It's 21 Commercial Boats our the Ones that Filed the Law suit Guess who Payed for that all The Fish Markets. Resturant , That want to sell Snapper all year Long ,And the Really sad Part Is A lot of these Boats also have a Charter Licence!! And as Far as The Trigger go It's only in Federal waters they are Closed Till 1-1-15, State waters have not Changed so that Means In Florida it will close 6-1-14 open again 8-1-14
and My personal Thoughts about RS Not That Great too Eat Fun to Catch But That's about It!! JMOP!!

Check this crap out. There is a whole lot of this out there. Go to change.org and in their search engine search Snapper or what ever pertains to fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. This is just a sample below. Then when you pull up the petitions go to their website and read these different groups stupid crap.

http://www.change.org/petitions/stop-amendment-28-red-snapper-reallocation-in-the-gulf-of-mexico


Check this one out. 97 percent of us do not catch our own fish. Make sure you read the Problem Impact, and ACT NOW! on the header. Unbelievable.

I think I mentioned something about this in a past thread. We need a spokesman to volunteer, a good attorney familiar with this stuff, and some backing ($$$$).

Who wants to step up?

I'll start it. I will give a 1000.00 to kick start this.

I think the PFF can raise enough money to get this going. Put your money where your mouth is. We need to get this organized.

We need to put the PFF on the map. Give the EDF the finger.

I think there is a lot of people who care about more than just 60 days of fishing, like the 300 other days of the year. Seems like inshore fishing is getting real popular these days!!

Does someone have a friend or relative, maybe in Mobile that is an attorney AND a recreational fisherman? Seems like someone with the expertise to deal with these people on this issue and an vested interest in the future of recreational fishing would be a good choice to lead on this. I don't know one, but I wish I did.

ÕWe have a lot of good information and suggestions here. We also have some very smart and knowledgeable people. The last ingredient that we have is a willingness to work together and solve a critical problem. With everything that we have, I see this coming together and a resolution with a positive outcome for rec fishermen. I offered to start a website...there is already one in place and thanks for the link Mr. Hilton. There is an organization in place also. I suggest that we all look this over very carefully and start giving input to the people already in place. Let's get this thing done...I know the commercials have the backing of the seafood eating establishments, fish mongers, wholesale seafood,...but they are not beyond getting hurt in their business by us not supporting them. Why should I go to and by a snapper dinner so the owner can support a commercial interest and keep me further away from the water....WITH MY MONEY!! I'll take that money and support OUR alliance with it....feed my own face....and bring myself back into the GOM fishing like I used to. I very rarely jump on a band wagon but when I do my brothers and sisters, it's for a worthy cause where not only my interest is as stake...but all the rest of us share in this. We should all be good stewards of our environment....the feds have abused it and continue restricting us from what good we can accomplish on our own by accepting bad data and the devils money to further their cause and fatten their pockets. Get informed of what exists and what is in place now. Letís all do our homework on this and come to a consensus on what has already been started, join up if we agree, and become part of this movement for this organization and the betterment of our natural resources.
