SeaOx 230C I think it's getting to be that more and more folks don't truly like to fish, catch fish, and eat fish. I think as the instant gratification it's all about the Trophy mentality has grown the people that just love to fish, catch fish and eat fish have been marginalized.


I have seen a ton of posts on this forum from those that think not only should croaker be outlawed but all bait users are inferior fisherman. And don't even get a croaker thread started. All the time some one around here is telling other they are wrong for how they fish, what they kept, what they did with what they kept and on and on.


I see the all to frequent post stating that freezing fish is wrong or they taste like **** and on and on..... Hooey!!!!! The vast majority of fish served in restaurants have been frozen. Properly handled and frozen fish is just fine to eat even after months of being frozen.Then add in the fact that while I am sure some do waste frozen fish and game you do not have any idea what goes on in everybody's house. Just because Joe might waste a bag or two does not mean Bob does. And Bob should not be restricted because Joe is waste full.


It is none of any one here's business if a private fisherman keeps a legal limit of fish once a year twice a year or everyday. Now when it comes to guides I think is a little bit different in that they are making a living off the People's fish not "their" fish. I don't think a person fishing with a guide should be under any different rules than everybody else.


I do think it may be time to limit the number of Guides in the biz.


For any one concerned with the population of trout do you personally seek other species to ease the pressure on the trout or do you just complain?


How many people on these forums still like to go fishing and if the trout ain't biting will try and find some croaker, sand trout or God forbid gaff top to catch?


If you are the type that if you can't get on the trout or reds you call it a "slow day" and go home. If you are the type that on those days will not try and catch something else instead you may need to ask yourself this question:


Do I really like being outdoors fishing and hunting? Why am I really out here chasing a certain fish a certain way to the point I think those do it different are doing it wrong?


Face it most Hunters and fishers no longer do so because they truly love being outside hunting and fishing and really enjoy eating what they catch and kill. Most folks are looking for instant gratification and/or the "trophy" all the while lessening what a "trophy" truly is.

Although I appreciate conservation I hardly believe one man guiding customers to legal harvest is worthy of criticism.

The "Fill the Freezer" approach got us to this point.
Sgerm, you are missing the point. TP&W is the problem, not Cpt Marty working his arse off to pay the bills. sgerm direct your energy at the cause, not the effects, of no action. a prime example is the fresh water fish pile up, and no temp restraints on fishermen. and in my humble opinion it is the croaker guides systematically destroying the fishery. and there is no limit to the number of guides on the bay. i'm a east galvetraz fisherman, and i refuse to fish it this summer(will not step foot into it), for the sheer number of guides there, disgusting. it's like a whaler extravaganza. i'm now fishing water i've never, or seldom fished. i'm so disgusted with it i can't think straight. but thanks to TP&W, it is what it is. and now a 5 fish limit. i might just kill every fish i catch and throw them back for the h$#@ of it. who know i might get into the gill-net business, TP&W doesn't care.

X's 2........Capt Marty is a real guide..... all others pale when it comes to putting well paying clients on the fish instead of just paying for the so-called "fishing experience" and a couple take homes for dinner.......
