There is a method to get the results you want.HJ will tell you to "follow the science", however if his science were true, there would be a scientific way to calculate the quota attained for recreational fishermen and not some random guess provided by a 17 year old red snapper census taker at the dock or an app that doesn't work half the time.
Maybe one day you will get your wish for more accuracy.
Red Snapper Yearly quota in fish = 30,000
SW Anglers in Texas = 950,000
Will be so exciting to apply for the RS lottery when you
apply for your state license,
to see if you get a fish tag or two so you can harvest a red snapper or two this year,
probably have an additional fee for your fish tag/stamp.
No tags this year, will just make the lottery the following year even more exciting.
Maybe the state will make them transferrable,
and then if you don't win one in the lottery,
you can buy one on Ebay in the secondary market.
BRING ON THE SCIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah but, with 3x fish, you're wrong HJ.
Quota 30,000 fish times 3x more = 90,000 fish
10+ anglers for each fish.
Yeah but, we really should get more than 3x fish.
Quota 30,000 fish times 30x more fish = 900,000 fish
Yeah! almost 1 fish per angler per year!!!!
Good times have arrived for sure.
