All I can say is that if FAG decides to put a ban on taking lobsters, I expect to see *no* pots. Those commercial guys are *raping* the bugs. I was out at Talcott shoals, and you could practically walk the last mile and change to the island by hopping from bouy to bouy.
Man, we need a lobby. Any rich benefactor want to buy us some politicians to counter those purchased by the commercial fishers?
Rather than a complete moratorium, why not do like abs and require free-diving? That'd at least make it a lot more sporting :-)
-- I've already been abused by one FAG officer looking for bug poachers. Guess carrying a speargun and float is probable cause (please note, no tanks)...
