This was a inshore charter trip not from our area but it does give a graphic display of wanton desruction. They caught their limit of fish and itlooks like many are on the small end of the scale. How can this be justified? I hope none of it was wasted. Is this the image that we want to give of ourselves as recreational anglers?? I guess it's good advertisement for the inshore charter guy but I still think it is a waste of resources.

Yup. It is amazing, but their fishery can support this.



Us?



We are much more limited in our resources so we can't catch and keep this kind of haul.



Mississippi is much of the same - I grew up there and can remember hauls like this all of the time.

Who the hell are you to judge someone if they are within the bag and lenght limits. Do you only keep 1 snapper instead when you can legally keep 2.

I agree... there are 3 slot reds and a big mess of trout. I don't know if you've ever driven to Venice. It's a HUGE watershed from a huge river (second or third largest in the world I think by water flow).

I would not do it myself, heck I'd limit it to 10 fish a piece, but a limit is a limit is a limit. I have doubts about fish management... I really do, but this is an EXCEPTIONAL fishery. I'm looking forward to someday fish it.

But yeah, sometimes the swinging lever goes too far either way... our Snapper season is certainly too short, and I'd agree their trout limits are too high.

But you gotta see it to believe it...

In Louisiana the legal size limit for trout is 12" and over, the bag limit is 25 per angler per day. Redfish legal size limit is 16" to 28", the bag limit is 5 per angler per day. One can even be over 28".

The resourceCAN handle the recreational fishing. Not every trip results in a limit of fish. A limit of fish is a great day of fishing. That's why they took the pictures.

Stop being such cry babies and assholes about it!

And YES, we can eat that much fish! Get over it and eat your mullet!!! :sick

Used to live in Buras, La just before Venice and I've done that numerous times. I can think of a ton of reasons to keep that many fish. Big family, family reunion, office fish fry, block party, Saints win the Superbowl, aunt sally's funeral, like to fry fish weekly but can't fish weekly, etc...etc... If it is legal you and I have no right to throw them under the bus.

Your going to call these guys "Jerk Offs" when they are within their RIGHTS and your going to complain because its not civil.

Wasn't my intention to flame...just answering your question



"what could somebody possibly do with this much fish? that is enough to feed an entire neighborhood"



to explain why the guys may not be "jerk offs that try to ruin something for everybody"



You can have an opinion, sail on.

Youc an voice your opinion all you want and doesnt mean its right. Beofore you go flaming someone for keeping fish within their limits maybe you should know a littel bit about the resource its coming from. Have you trout fished in louisiana? Its no big deal to go catch 100 or more fish in a morning

I don't understand how these rec fishermen's intent is questioned. People ask "what could they possibly do with that amount of fish?" or "That could feed an entire neighborhood!" Of couse it can, and it just might. Maybe someone wants to have a fish fry to celebrate something, or a memorial type thing, or whatever the heck they choose. They're within the legal limits to keep that much fish, why not keep that many? I promise you that much fish is very easy to get rid of (not wasted, but used or given to people who would LOVE to have it). Same thing with people complaining about how many deer someone kills... It's easy to go through a lot of meat if you don't want to buy so much fish/beef/chicken from WallyWorld. I know that I could personally go through A LOT of fish at a time when we get a lot of family/friends together. Then, on top of all those legitimate arguments to the questions, how about a vacuum sealer and freezer?!?! Some peopel can't fish any time they want to and get one or two cracks at it per year. If your family likes fish, it is not hard AT ALL to go through that much trout over a period of time.

Oh its horrible to catch & keep that many fish! But its ok to go to Joe Patti's & buy that much fish. Louisianna has plenty of redfish & trout, Why? Because our dumbasses release them! :doh

I've fished LA a lot about 15 - 20 years ago when I was stationed there. I can definitely say that the fish we caught were bigger. If you fillet them small trout it's about equal to two slices of bologna. I can understand the commercial guys defending useless slaughter or our fisheries because that's how they define a good trip and advertise for customers. Try this sometime, go to Orange Beach on a summer weekend evening and you can probably get a cooler full of ERS, YFT and BFT from people giving it away in the parking lots or watch them throw it in the trash. Then the crews on the boats take a haul home as well because the customers don't want the fish. That my friends is not how you manage a sustainable fishery. The very same people who defend the slaughter because it's the limit and legal will be the first people to bitch when bag limits and seasons are shortened or even canceled. There is a difference between taking what you need, what you can use and what looks good in pictures. If we don't fish responsibly now, it won't be long before we can't fish at all. Just look at the Red Snapper and Amberjack situation that we find ourselves in now. The fishing of 40 years ago is gone and we'll never see the likes of it again because of ego and greed.
