Commercial Oyster Boats in East Matagorda

I fished East Matagorda over the weekend and witnessed dozens of Oyster boats in the bay. These guys were ganged up on top of all the beds on the West end of the bay. At the end of the day I saw boats packed to the top with sacks of oysters. I doubt there will be much left once they are done. I heard state congressman Bonnen has a target on them after what these jackasses did to Christmas Bay. The beds were totally destroyed. I am not sure those guys give a flip about the resource.

They don't care about anything but the money, folks need to call their representatives in support of House Bill 51. Check out the last several pages on this thread if haven't read it yet.

We have been invaded. By who, I don't know.

We have a place under the bridge and the same half dozen or so boats have unloaded oysters in our cove for years. Never mind that they are all illegals. This year there is the usual gang unloading in our cove, one group unloading under the bridge on the south side of the ICW, and one group by the little bridge on cemetery road.

This is a straight up gang rape.

It was a grind Friday. We put 6 in the box and I CPR a 28" fatty. Saturday was a blowout in East so we headed to west and only boxed a couple. Due south wind made for tough conditions.

I heard the old Galveston oyster companies still carry a lot of pull in Austin. Oystering should be shut down for 10 years, and let the bays recover. Order something else on the restaurant menu. How hard is that?

I'm confused on this HB 51. I watched the video where Dennis Bonnen was giving them heck. Every one of the commercial oysters guys that came up to testify were in support of HB 51 ???? How can that be? I need the cliff notes for this bill. lol

Probably pretty hard if you're in the oyster business,I'm not a fan of the big oyster companies but shutting down someone's living gives me the creeps.Alot of treehuggers want to shut down coal mining and any other fossil fuel business without thinking of the people that make their living in it.
