Jim Matthews at FishRap is reporting that "the California State Fish and Game Commission adopted sweeping closures of ocean waters off the Southern California coast, eliminating sportfishing and most other uses in these areas in a vote Dec. 15 in Santa Barbara.
"In adopting the regulations, mandated as part of the Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA), three words come immediately to mind about the process: corrupt, unfunded and unnecessary. The process has been flawed from the beginning."
Folks, as I've warned repeatedly, this is what could be coming nationwide, courtesy of the National Ocean Council.
Also, check out the works of Capt. Len Belcaro at Big Game Fishing Journal. He is doing an excellent job of exposing this attempted big-government theft of our right to fish.
Get active and get involved. The future of fishing depends on your activism.
