With that being said over the last 40 or more years few have profited more from our resource than Capt. Micky. Over the decades he and his customers have boxed and iced untold thousands and thousands of pounds of trout and redfish from our bays and he has made a very comfortable living doing so. Not so much different from any commercial fisherman. He gets paid to catch fish.
So I think there is a little hypocrisy going on for Capt. Micky to accuse anyone of "raping" anything if he even in fact said that. Let alone a handful of guys harvesting oysters the exact same way man has been doing it in our bays for thousands of years. Picking them up by hand...
The same oysters we all love to eat on the half shell or hot off the grill.
Glad you are a fan of Capt. Mickey. He never used the term or accused anybody of raping anything. Those are Thinshavings comments. He acknowledged the fact that, he himself has harvested his own oysters by hand.
The context of the conversation, mainly with Capt. James Plaag was the surprise of seeing boats there. Plaag even questioned the christmas Bay thing as in his 30 years he has never seen it and thought it was a restricted area.
Listen for yourself, in the link below are the podcasts, scroll down to Friday, February 24th. In hour one at 13:45 he discusses it with Capt. Tommy Alexander. Then in hour two at 3:41 he discusses it with Capt. Plaag.
