    this is most likely the closest to real change we have been in close to 14 years of fighting

    I think you guys are counting the chickens
    before they hatch.

    Remember posting this?

    “Similarly, the approach will necessarily mean that the private recreational sector will substantially exceed its annual catch limit”

    Might need to dust off your crystal ball

    Or this?

    Oh, and when 2018 rolls around,
    and you learn about the Red Snapper "season"

    Remember, that was brought to you by the combined
    efforts of the Trump Administration, Gulf Council and your local politicians.

    Only count chickens on sand intersections. Never in their huts. That be crazy...

    THOSE ARE NOT MY WORDS.
    I DID NOT WRITE THAT.

    You copied that from an article I posted.
    If you look, you will see the experts predicted a 200-300% overage.

    If I remember correctly, I predicted a 35% potential overage.
    When the numbers come out,
    lets see who is closer to the actual overage.
    Professional fisheries scientists, or HJ.

    THOSE ARE MY WORDS

    And the related directly to my comment about not counting
    your chickens before they hatch.

    For example, no point in getting excited about snapper check
    results for 2017, as they will NOT be used for the harvest numbers,
    MRIP will be, same for the other states as well.

    If the harvest shows an overage from this year,
    remember, the experts predicted 200-300% potentially,
    whatever overage has occurred based on the count,
    accurate or not, will be deducted from next years quota.
    Toss in the lawsuits against the actions that occurred this year,
    and potentially next year the regs might not be as loose,
    and any overage potentially being deducted will shorten it more.
    Too early to tell
    Too early to get excited
    Just my opinion.

    No. I should watch my mouth. poorly-spelled swear words do not lead to
    intelligent conversation.....:D
