Here we go again a 27% reduction in summer flounder. For a stock that is 100% rebuilt supposable CT goes from 380k to 280k in 1 season. Who the hell is the scientist behind this one. I think these scientist go to same school as the weatherman, no matter how bad you f it up you still get a paycheck. Commen sense please tell me how do these educated people count all these fish in the sea. Now I know why most commercial fisherman are pissed off most of the time. Black fish going down to cause they can't control the black market so what do they do take the easy road so close it up and hammer the commercial fisherman.

you still need to have a federal license plus the landing to be covered. These rec guys are going to get tickets once they get stopped with just a 500 dollar landing license. They need both to be covered.

Here is the answer to,"summer flounder what the hell".


[FONT=CG Times (US)]The Plan[/FONT]
In the Beginning was The Plan
And then came The Regulations
And The Regulations were without form
And The Plan was completely without substance
And the darkness was upon the face of the fishermen.
And they spoke among themselves, saying, "It is a crock of shit, and It stinketh"
And the fisherman went unto their Leaders and sayeth,
"It is a pail of dung and none may-abide the odor thereof"
And the fishermen's Leaders went unto the Fishery Management Council and sayeth unto Them,
"It is a container of excrement and it is very strong such that none may abide by it"
And the Fishery Management Council went unto NMFS and sayeth,
"It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength."
And NMFS spoke amongst themselves, saying one to another,
"It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong."
And NMFS went unto the Head of NMFS and sayeth unto him,
"It promotes growth and is very powerful."
And the Head of NMFS went unto the Secretary of Commerce and sayeth unto Him,
"This new Plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency of the Industry,
and these Areas in particular."
And the Secretary of Commerce looked upon The Plan,
And saw that it was good, and The Plan became Policy.

Sorry to say that is not true. The DEC told me its a loophole because blackfish are not federally regulated:mad:

They can control the "black market" Taug fishing but it is alot easier to control us. Keep in mind the black market is a minority group and solely a minority group and you know how that works in this country. In other words it all about the "Paper".

Rumor is that blackfish will not be allowed to be landed on that
permit in the future ie.next year.

NYSDEC is in the process now of changing the eligibility for the landing lic...and they are having blackfish put under federal law...so that lic will be no good
