See...now we are starting to come together on this. Ban commercial sale/gigging of Flounder the same as we have done with Specks & Reds. That would give them the much needed relief they needs. Or how about banning the use of airboats for gigging. Several option were discissed at the public hearing and many were better that shutting down the walking gigger.

Perhaps I'm more up to speed than given credit for. After walking with a Coleman lantern & gigging for 32 years straight ... no gaps (purely as a recreational activity) I have a unique and up close concept of what is happening to my sport. Next to duck hunting, gigging the old fashion way is my 2nd favorite sport. Read some of my post. My 9 year old and I go almost every weekend...



except November.
X-2 I'M with you. I've always thought the limits for COM. should be the same as REC. if they want to sell there's its OK......CVA34

I don't understand why anyone (commercially) should be able to take enough of ''OUR'' fish that they can make a living on it. There's no way the recreational fisherman could catch as much as the commercials do.....
