The New Regulations in the Works

Capt. Bill made a very good post at the Florida Sportsman Fishing Forum. The new proposed regulations for Dolphin, Wahoo and Cobia are being made for no good reason really.  Once regulations are put in place it is very hard to have them relaxed as condition change.  The lack of flexibility by the South Atlantic Marine Fisheries Commission is the biggest point that needs to be made by recreational anglers.  Statistics are no better than the person using them and there are plenty of people that abuse statistics without realizing that they are.  There needs to be a better, easier way to relax regulations as conditions improve or the statistics are disproved.

If you get the chance check out his report on the Georgia meeting and try to get vocal about how over regulation is not good for our fishing economy or your fishing vacation.

Marathon in the Florida Keys should be your next fishing vacation destination. Join us for charter fishing, fishing guide trips or our fishing 101 so you can fish on your own with better success.

Tight lines,

Capt. Dallas
