even if you could get every single member of PFF to boycot walmart, that would account for maybe half of one drop in walmart's gigantic retail bucket.... i'll keep shopping there.

I'd be naked if I didn't go to walmart. I have entire wardrobes from wally world. Kmart ain't no fun. Can't afford JC Penny.
Besides, walmart used to give away kids fishing combos and small tackle boxes to the kiddies. Have they stopped that too?

We used to have this kiddie thing on the old Three Mile Fishing Pier where kids and their parents could fish. We wuld act as instructors etc.

Walmart et al provided free T shirts(I still have mine), and Walmart contributed little orange 'Snoopy Poles'. I was fishing one day afterwards and snagged one of them. I still have it.

I also wonder if anything similar happens today? Just curious. C2

Yeah - they give away free tackle to our kiddies but crack a whip on the kiddies in the slave camps in China, Cambodia, etc. that are making them. Not sure its a good trade off.

Walmart donated $500 to our 5K 5un this year in support of beach accessible reefs off Navarre.
Beyond that boycotts don't work - energies are better spent on something more productive.

Default Look into it if it smells like fish............

"I would recommend doing your own research before jumping on the bandwagon."
__________________


The point here is that more and more corporate donations to fund eco-groups with similar agendas should jump out at you like a snake. The catch share quotas funding was cut off by congress Yet the head of our MNFS continues to promote this issue. The thread by Tom Hilton on corruption, catch shares and crooks shows how our system is manipulated
by commerical interests funded through eco-groups who push thier agenda with foggy science and dooms day predictions based on that science. Take a few minutes and DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH on the subject. Go to the FRA site and look at the agendas and links between the players. A quick look at the recent gulf coast counsel aslo on this forum and see who's benifiting from eco-regulations. Black grouper quota 73% commercial 27% recreational. Then page down and look at the proposed
Mackeral agenda:

Mackerel- Amendment 18
This amendment addresses the establishment of annual catch limits, accountability measures, and possibly annual catch targets for king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, and cobia. Measures include:
1. Remove Cero, little tunny, dolphin, and bluefish from the management unit.
2. Revise the framework procedure contained within the costal migratory pelagics fishery management plan and adopt the base framework procedure.
3. Establish separate migratory groups of cobia at the South Atlantic and Gulf Council boundary.
4. Adopt the Gulf Council’s acceptable biological catch control rule for cobia, Spanish mackerel, and king mackerel.
5. Set the annual catch limit equal to the acceptable biological catch for cobia, Spanish mackerel, and king mackerel. Set a single stock annual catch limit for Spanish mackerel and cobia. For king mackerel set separate commercial and recreational annual catch limits and gear specific annual catch limits for the commercial sector.
6. Set a single stock annual catch target that is 90% of the annual catch limit for cobia.
7. For cobia and Spanish mackerel set in-season accountability measures so that the fishery will be closed for the remainder of the fishing year once the annual catch target is reached for a season.

Number 7's the kicker. If this goes through then they could at anytime
during the year STOP fishing for cobia or spainish mackeral. I see another ARS situation happening here and no one seems to excited over it.

Wal-mart may be misguided and boycoting probally would'nt help
but not everthing they do is community oriented either.

APPERARS EVEN THOSE WITH AN OPINION SHOULD DO SOME RESEARCH
ON WHATS HAPPENING IN OUR COUNTRY'S MARINE MANAGEMENT DECISION MAKING WORLD.

I do not like where some of walmarts donations are going either and it has made me second guess buying fishing tackle there. However, where else would I be able to go at 3 am in the morning where I can get toilet paper, a loaf of bread, a step ladder and a chain saw all in the same place?

A boycott of wally world won't help, but representation
of recreational anglers would. These folks are doing
the things we talk about on here. They're watching
out for our rights to fish and keeping watch over
the powers that be to curb the corruption that so
blantently is occuring amoung our marine fisheries regulators.

just take a look sit a spell and open your mind
be prepared to get angry then take action...........
