Good for you CDog! I haven't gone to one since the late 90's.

The MPLA's were the most comprehensive conservation measures ever proposed for our waters. The sportfishing community squandered a great opportunity to build vital aliances when it turned against the reserves.

Had they been smart they would have known that the reserves were an inevitability and they could have used their endorcement to solve some of the other lingering problems like gillnets and dragers on the Horseshoe..

I will never go to that show again!
