A guy named Kim had it all shut down I think.

Kim oughta have his butt kicked. (Probably a Democrat)

What was his reasoning and who bought it?

FADs absolutely work. I made my own (Small)and anchored it in 600 feet 215 degrees off Destin back in LORAN A days. I didn't always find it but, when I did, I always caught a Wahoo or Dolphin off it. There were few small boats out there in those days. Early 60's.

At least once per week, one of the Destin charter boats found a log or something floating and came in with a ton of Wahoo and Dolphin and maybe a billfish or two. Probably still the same.

Why not FADS?

BTW, probably illegal to have a DIY FAD these days. Probably illegal back then too. I floated many refrigerator crates with a chum bag too. With a chum bag, they loaded up quick if a shark didn't horn in. I always tied the chum bag in on 20# Mono so a Shark could have the bag without sinking the crate. I'm sure that would go over like a pregnant pole-vaulter these days.

Just about everything's illegal nowadays, sometimes a little civil disobedience puts a pile of fish in the box. Or so I've heard.
