Gov. Scott and FWC Announce Saltwater and Freshwater License-Free Fishing Days – Outdoors – Santa Rosa Press Gazette

Its never been more accessible to the common man to be able to get off shore and enjoy the natural resources, he said. An entire industry has exploded around this, and so you have a law that was in place that didnt have an industry when it was set. Gabriel said its unclear, at this point, what will actually be passed into law, and that his constituency is OK with changes that dont necessarily benefit recreational anglers in every case. In some instances, were fairly certain were going to go from 51 percent commercial/49 percent recreational to at least 50/50, if not 51 recreational/49 commercial, he said. But if it happens to go 52/48 against us, fine, thats fine. The issue is just do the process and get off the duff and do it. Moving forward From this point forward, H.R. 4742 awaits a vote on the floor of the House of Representatives, while the Senate Commerce Committee is also expected to unveil its version of the Magnuson-Stevens Act reauthorization in the near future.

Best Father’s Day Gift Is To Teach A Child To Love Fishing – Post And Courier

Age group winners from the 2010 Folly Beach Anglers Take a Kid Fishing event held at Folly Beach Pier.

On Memorial Day, I got to help my 3-year-old grandson, Jon Thomas Perry, catch his first fish. Last Christmas, my sister gave Jon Thomas a small rod and reel, and he insisted on taking it on a Memorial Day trip by boat to the beach, clutching it the entire way. Eventually, we rigged the outfit with a hook and split shot, baited the hook with old shrimp, flipped the bait out and began our wait. It didn’t take long, but the memory will last a lifetime.

Gabriel said the reauthorization of Magnuson-Stevens and making changes that take into account recreational concerns is a 10 out of 10 in terms of importance for the industry. He added that, while it may sound simple, reaching a favorable conclusion is a complex process whose duration is measured in years, not months. Were still a long, long way in this process in my opinion were just starting this process, were a long way from it being finished, but were at a crucial moment. Even if this takes a whole other year to work itself out before we actually see legitimate bills going before the full House for their approval, and the same in the Senate. We may be a year, we may be a year and a half, we may be almost two years away from these bills getting to the point where were close to seeing something passed by the President this is a crucial time for us to be involved. With many interests at the table, from environmental groups, boat builders and to large commercial fishing operations, Gabriel said its vitally important that the community is at the table and heavily engaged.
