I hear You Bud,,I Thought So Also.But LookingI don't think anyone that fishes saltwater would have a problem with a license "If" the entire fee went back into our sport.
Another Good Point,It would be interesting to seeTalking about a SW fee is one thing, enforcing the license is another
From my reading, the roughly $6 million in funds would boost their budget by 170% and primarily go to doubling existing research and enforcement staff. I have yet to read a state proposal outlining new or significant improvements to existing facilities. Nor has it been clearly explained what benefit the doubling of existing staffing will have. Will we end up with twice the fish, twice the places to fish or just twice the bureaucracy?Originally posted by seeker2:
Bgsdad > I do not want to pay for another thing either, however, after reading your post your answer should have actually been yes. The poll states that the funds would entirely go into N.J. saltwater fishing. Sort of like the PA Sate Game Commission. We see our money come back to us in the form of State Game Lands and Shooting facilities and many other perks.
