Trawling for answers to dwindling fish counts

I was a commercial fisherman most of my life as a child up to teen hood then as a young adult I worked with my dad and grandfather most of my life .things have changed allot since I was a kid we were pushed out of the business
because of new regulations and rules and the price of fuel we could no sustain being cost effective to fish any more. back in the early 80's national marine fisheries dedicated all fisherman days at sea for ground fishing and it just happened to be my dad had (HART SURGERY ONE YEAR ) and did not ground fish so the national marine fisheries took away 109 Of his 128 days at sea for ground fishing leaving the business with 19 days to fish the whole winter season HMM I wonder how you can live on that. people have to understand there are more reason for the disappearance of winter flounder
in the area .lets just say it seems strange when they took away the stripped bass in mass away from the commercial fisherman and many years later allotted us 206 tags which I say is BS the number of flounders started to disappear HMM I wonder . we used to go in fleets from Hampton bays to Westhampton and from Hampton Bays to Southampton and
back in a day have a boat load of fish you don’t see that any more. just say there are 1 million striped bass from Montauk to Hampton Bays and they ATE 10 baby flounders a day but I know there are many more bass than that You do the math maybe they should not limit the bass and screw up the Eco system or just limit all fish then this tag system is a joke.
I could go on for hours but im tired of typing
good luck to all my fellow Commercial fisherman " May 24, 09 6:13 PM
