    Did you watch that show Big Fish Texas ? Every single time it aired on TV the internet EXPLODED with people losing their shit with how many fish were being taken. In one episode they lost an entire boat of reds because of bad icing methods. They decided to just use it for cat/dog food. I wonder if Nat Geo is even going to continue with the show after the shit storm they created lol.

    There are commercial guys that have good buddies at FWC, so obvious!

    Commercial interests are well funded and somewhat unified and the Commission and politicians are responding to them, while sport fishermen are being represented by a spattering of individuals and organizations to contest the regulations. There's no other reason, I can see, why the commercial industry profits while sport fisherman pay the price in over-regulation. By the same token we have individuals, on both sides, who think that limits, slot-limits, and laws don't apply to them. Thanks for posting such a revealing video.

    Such a political who done it between commercial and law makers. Its sickening to see this kind of thing happen every day on commercial boats but us recreational anglers could lose our boats.

    Thanks for posting that video Sam. Enough to make me sick. I spend thousands of dollars on my boat, support bait and tackle shops, mechanics, etc., etc. and I can't keep one damn snapper. Oh wait, I forgot there are NO RED SNAPPER.
    Hopefully the feds and the FWC guys who are making these rules will be retiring soon with all the kick-back money they are getting. Lets' get somebody in there who will face reality and change the law.
    President Trump can you hear me? Help.
