Default time to go

I think it is time to remove this category. The last thing I want to see on PFF is a report about a charter guy catching RS when I cannot. The charter guys have taken from us what should be for all, and we need to understand they are not our fridens.

Do you want the root cause of the problem? It's called a market otherwise known as a demand. Plain and simple. If every rec fisherman got the message to not purchase ARS at every business establishment and followed thru with that action...and we are talking nation wide...the market would plummet. Remember commercial boys only buy their ARS at the political level...we rec guys purchase it with license fees, equipment, fuel, repairs, and everything else associated with fishing. We all go to our favorite eating establishment...just don't order the snapper....or what ever it is in its place sometimes. Don't believe me?? Look what's happening to the tobacco industry. Agreed snapper won't kill you...it just makes those in the business of selling it richer and they are protecting what the market demands. I'm only one person...but I guit smoking 35 years ago and I guit buying ARS in any form over 2 years ago. I don't miss it...there are lots of other great tasting fish out there. Oh well to long already so join me or keep the commercial / restaurant & wholesalers happy!

I understand everyone's feelings but not all captains were for it. Personally I enjoy reading Jake Adams grouper report.

And I agree with feeling wright! Nothing against those that help us rec guys...I just want the ability to do in a body of water what some folks have entrenched political teeth into a government that bends to the lobbies that fatten their pockets with money and other entities and restricts my ability because I'm recreational to keep a certain type of fish.

Default charters

I am not saying that all charter captains are bad persons. BUT I am saying we are on different sides of the fence, and have different agends. I am sure 90% or more of the fisherman on this site are rec fisherman. I would hope this site will support the rec fishmen and not the charter guys. If not I am gone. The charter guys drew the line in the sand not the rec guys. We never ask for fish that would not be allowed to the charter guys. It is sad, but it is time to know whitch side the forum is on?

What difference does it make what side a forum is on? It in itself is a service providing a path of communication between people who share common interests. That's all, other than funding from sponsors who also share and hope to draw customers for their products, yes maybe even some commercial guys...its still a forum! It does not appear to have a political agenda, irresponsible owners or moderators, approve of porn or throw out a religious agenda. Leave it alone or buy it out and get yourself a forum to back something if that's what you want. Just my 2!

The way I see it is that God put fish in the oceans and critters on the land so that we could provide FOOD for OURSELVES.

If you want to rape God's oceans for financial profit, then that's fine but don't stop my God given right to provide for myself.

I for one don't have any problem catching red snapper. But, keeping them is another matter. If I get really snapper hungry, there's always the Magma Grill.
