This is one of the biggest arguments on fishign forums. The logic and science behind it makes sence makes sence to me though. What is killing us out here on the west coast is the MPA's (Marine Protected Areas). I am all about protecting wildlife, but there are no fences in the ocean. It would make more sense if they rotated and moved to help different areas. The problem is lawmakers are not really known for their ability to use common sense.
This is very true. The people who make the laws can be idiots, for sure.
