THE TITLE OF THE ARTICLE IS: CULLED OUT and this is what it is about
New Obama rules may prohibit citizens from fishing the nation's oceans, coastal areas, Great Lakes, and even inland waters...BE ADVISED!!!
INFORMATIVE ARTICLE...THIS COULD LEAD TO A MODERN DAY "BOSTON TEA PARTY"
ON THE GREAT LAKES..FISHING AND BOATIONG IS A 17 BILLION DOLLAR A YEAR BUSINESS AND I DONT THINK PEOPLE WILL STAND FOR THIS ****.
WHERE IS THE RESOURCES COMING FROM TO ENFOCE THESE RULES,AS YOU WOULD NEED AT LEAST ONE LAW OFFICER FOR EVERY 10 FISHERMAN.AND THATS PROBABLY A VERY CONCERVATIVE GUESS.
IM JUST TOO OLD TO WORRY ABOUT THIS AND I INTEND TO CONTINUE FISHING NO MATTER WHAT OBIE WAN OBAMA DOES.
REMEMBER ALL OF THIS IN NOVEMBER.AND LET US ALL VOTE WITH OUR BRAINS.
BY NOW WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH AND HAVE SEEN ENOUGH TO KNOW WHERE TO PUT THE X ON THE BALLOT.
NEW PEOPLE IN..OLD ONES OUT AND MAYBE A NEW BEGINNING.
Sometimes there are valid reasons for closed areas to protect and replenish species - the Exuma park comes to mind. We must protect fishing but make sure we know the facts and aren't jumping on someones bandwagon that has another agenda. Nothing can mess up a good day of fishing more than a political argument.
The anglers of the U.S. are a diverse group and we need to pull together to further good fishing regs. not alienate each other over political beliefs. I'm not taking sides here - I just don't like divisive politics to cloud science and our sports future. I'm near 70 but have grandsons who I want to fish these waters.
Just one mans opinion.
BURTON:YOUR OPINION IS RESPECTED
BUT I AM GETTING TIRED OF PEOPLE WITH AGENDAS INFRINGING ON RIGHTS OF OTHERS,TRYING TO TURN THE CONSTITUTION INTO THEIR OWN SET OR LAWS,GOING DOWN THE ROAD TO SOCIALISM,FAILING TO REALLY ACKNOWLEDGE WE ARE AT WAR AND THAT PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD IN MOST COUNTRIES ARE WANTING TO KILL US,WHILE WE PUMP OUR TAX DOLLARS INTO THEIR COUNTRIES.
IT HAS TO STOP AND WE CAN STOP IT ONLY AT THE BALLOT BOXES OR VOTING MACHINES.
ON A FISHING NOTE: FISHING THE C14 OUT OF MARGATE..WE CAUGHT 13 BASS..2 OVER 3 LBS..SENKOS WACKY RIGGED.
TRIED SENKOS T RIGGED AND FLUKES,NOTHING.
MARV PLEASE GIVE EXAMPLES OF HOW OUR CONSTITUTION IS BEING CHANGED. ALSO INCLUDE HOW YOUR LIFE HAS OR WILL BE CHANGED. PLEASE DON'T SPEW THE TYPICAL "GLENN BECK", "O'REILLY", "LIMBAUGH" TALKING POINTS EITHER. TELL US HOW THE CONSTITTION OR YOUR LIFE HAS BEEN CHANGED BY ANYTHING THAT THIS ADMINISTRATION HAS DONE OR WILL DO IN THE FUTURE. IF YOU CAN'T GIVE ANYONE SPECIFIC ANSWERS THEN YOU NEED TO STFU AND CONTINUE ENJOYING THE VERY FREEDOMS YOU ARE ENJOYING NOW. BESIDES, YOU ARE ON THE BACK NINE OF LIFE SO TO SPEAK. SO QUIT EFFING COMPLAINING, TIE ON A WACKY RIGGED ACE AND CATCH ALL OF THE 1-2 POUNDERS YOU WANT. SAVE YOUR TIRADE FOR THE MEMBERS OF YOUR SHUFFLEBOARD TEAM. THEY WILL LOVE TO HEAR IT.
ON ANOTHER NOTE. THE REASON THIS ADMINISTRATION (OR OBI WAN OBAMA AS MARV LIKES TO CALL THE POTUS) PUT THIS TASK FORCE INTO PLACE, IS SO IDOITS DON'T GO OFFSHORE AND LOAD THEIR COOLERS UP WITH AS MANY 10" SCHOOLIE DOLPHIN AS THEY CAN, OR TAKE 50 "ANYSIZE" BASS OR AS MANY LOBSTERS SLOT OR NO SLOT AS THEY WANT. I COULD GO ON WITH SNOOK, GROUPER ETC. IT IS SIMPLY CALLED PROTECTING OUR FISHERIES FOR THE FUTURE. YOU AND MARV PROBABLY BELIEVE THAT EXTENZE REALLY DOES MAKE YOUR SHANK THICKER AND LONGER! LMFAO. I HAVE SOME LAND EAST OF THE BEACH, WANNA BUY SOME?

MARV MY NAME IS CARL AND I DO HAVE BALLS. I WOULD THINK A MAN WITH YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS WOULD BE MORE EDUCATED THAN YOU ARE TO BELIEVE ONE ARTICLE WRITTEN OBVIOUSLY BY A WRITER WH HATES OUR PRESIDENT. YOU KNOW THE GUY YOU MADE FUN OF. ANYWAY I DO CARE ABOUT OUR ENVIROMENT AND OUR FISHERIES. I CARE SO MUCH THAT I DID RESEARCH AND WROTE TO MY LOCAL CONGRESSMAN VOICING MY OPINION. I DIDN'T JUST GO ON SOME BASS SITE AND SPEW MY HATE (LIKE YOU AND JOHN B AND SUMKINA) I ACTUALLY DID SOME RESEARCH. HEREhttp://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2781172/obama_fishing_ban_story_spread_by_glenn.html?cat=9 YET ANOTHER LINK (ONE OF HUNDREDS) DEBUNKING THAT REPUBLICAN FEAR TACTIC. HAVE A GREAT DAY MARV.
I AM NOT TAKEN IN BY ANYONES FEAR TACTICS..WHEN YOU THINK OF THE LOGISTICS INVOLVED IT HAS TO BE IMPOSSIBLE TO STOP EVERYONE FROM FISHING,
AND AS FOR OUR PRES..I JUST LOST FAITH IN HIM AS THERE HAVE BEEN TOO MANY LIES AND FAILED CAMPAIGN PROMISES.
HE IS NOT THE SAVIOR I THOUGHT HE WOULD BE,
LETS GO BACK TO FISHING REPORTS..AND THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT RESPONDEDAND GAVE INSIGHT AND OPINIONS.
THAT WAS A GREAT RESPONSE JOHN B. IT WAS TOO EASY DEBUNKNG YOUR HATE PIECE. BUT LIKE THE TRUE REPUBLICAN YOU ARE, YOU SPIT OUT THE FAMOUS SAYING "KEEP DRINKING YOUR KOOLAID". WELL SAID BECK I MEAN O'REILLY, IMEAN LIMBAUGH. I MEAN PALIN, I MEAN JOHN B. GO TEAM EXTENZE. LMAO
Sir, are you certain posting snarky political statements on a fishing site over a period of 3 hours is the best use of Broward County Public School computer time. Aren't we, the public, paying for your ability to post inflammatory and obscene comments at a site totally unrelated to Public Schools?
This is why I love this site. A guy can post a topic, another can disagree and then the originator of the post checks his IP address. You can't ask for better comedy. Probably a high school kid who got under the skin of an older fella. I love it!
I am a Republican and because I am a Christian I am considered "Far right" However, I like to read articles that are not written with emotion one way or the other. Give me the facts and let me make up my own mind. The links that Carl posted are as far out in left field as they come. While the info might be valid I just can't digest it due to the left platform chest beating going on.
Facts are that their is fear amid the saltwater fishing community. Until the final numbers are posted it is all hearsay. However, if they do limit it to 1 Red Snapper per man per day that will have some powerful negative ramifications. I am sure that WE ALL CAN AGREE ON THAT.
Since they did in fact close recreational fishing for some species here in Florida on the east Coast up the eastern seaboard, the fear is that if they can do that then they can do this for freshwater also. Just a thought.
What a bunch of A Holes. I bet you guys drive around with American flags on your cars or flying in front of your houses.(or mobile homes). Why not try supporting who ever gets elected and be real Americans. I don't care if it's Bush or Obama, it's our president and our country. Beck, O'Rielly,
Limbaugh, Bill Mahre are all a bunch of parasite leaches laughing all the way to the bank. They don't care about America. Of course there are regulations on certain types of fish. Do you know how many snook and tarpon just died over the past few months. Fishing regulations were put in on Gruper, Kings and who knows how many fish when Bush was in office. You think he or Obama are sitting at thier desks thinking of what fish to save next??? Republican, Demacrat...who cares? Try to support them like a REAL AMERICAN.
I bet you have never watched O'reilly if you did you would see he tries to stay in the center.
They will never stop recreational fishing.way too much money involved.
I would like to see tournament fishing stopped.Taking bass off beds cant be good for fishing.having a hundred engines putting gas and oil into the waters can't be good either.
As far as political I'm a centrist,I hate both parties.
