That is false, I know a lot of guys who release all their weakies every spring. And it not just random by catch every once in a while on a bass trip. I also some guys who kill em, but it is bold to say that everyone that gets caught is kept.
I think there should probably be a moratorium. That said I haven't kept one in a long time
The season should be closed during their spawning time Mid April to mid May, the fish we catch have avoided many obsticals to get to their place of spawning and just when they are ready to do their thing people are killing them, in a strong fishery taking a couple of breeders doesn't hurt but in this fishery in it's current state it can do a ton of damage.Since the real problem here seems to be the taking of big breeder fish, and nobody really catches more thatn one in a trip anyway, is this really going to help? wouldnt a slot be better?
I herd from an old friend yestreday that the regs on the weakies was now 1 Fish over 16".. [/qu
They should put a coastal moratorium on them including the recs and commercials just like they did with stripers. My favorite was fishing for tiderunners caught many kept some released some and gave some away usually depending who i was fishing with. Dont even try for them now but I've slowed down on salt fishing overall. It's great when they are abundant took up many nites.
Omg another barn kill tiderunners finger pointing session again? Again? already?? id say stick to the original topic about the size limits.
