Seems everyone I talk to at the docks takes issue with charter boats getting a head start on the red snapper season and commercial guys having an open season but nobody seems to know what to do or a simply unwilling to make the effort to fix this robbery. Every state seems to handle this differently but the end result is a bias toward commercial activities. The way I see it is the fish BELONG to the American people not the federal or local governments, they are basically saying we own them and are giving them to private entities! This is wrong!
