Default ***attention ft pickens flounder fishermen***

YOU cannot gig flounders from the west corner fort wall to the east corner fort wall.

You can gig flounders from the east corner wall headed east to the camp ground which is about 100 plus yards of beach.

You cannot gig flounders from the camp ground east to the park ranger station pier.

As you can see this is the flounder beach which means why go for 100 yards of beach!

you need to call Mr. Brown at the GINS. Let him know this is NOT FAIR!

You should have been at the meeting last night!

maybe we should organize a "raft up" plan to all flounder at Fort Pickens on a certain date? See how many tickets they can write?

It is also important that the reason for the restricted flounder gigging area is for the SAFETY OF OTHER GUESTS at the park!!! This came out of Dan Brown's mouth!!

How outrageous is that!!! That a man or woman with a flounder gig presents a danger to other people!!!

Government at it's finest!

Don't worry everybody everything will be ok, the government knows what's best for us.........

Wes, after we left the meeting we floundered Ft. Pickens with no trouble. I did hear you tell Mr Brown that a friend of yours was run off from Pickens beach. Maybe they took the night off!

Default Do they own the water, and if so how far out?

I am not trying to be a smart *ss, but want to stay out of trouble. Is this for wading giggers or boat giggers? There goes a huge section of decent production.

Thanks in advance,

Bob

This should certainly be removed from the books. Capt Wes, since this has been on the books since the 80's, do you know if this would have to be resolved separately from issues with the proposed alternatives? If so, would a petition for removing this regulation be a good way to go about this?

Boatnbob, I believe it pertains to all giggers.
