Think of all the lure makers, boat manufacturers, marinas/boat launches, camp sites, gas stations, tire dealers, fiberglass repair businesses, outboard shops... ect that will fold.
There are hundreds of mom and pop businesses that are barely making it right now due to the economy.

That's what I am saying - where is the voice, call to action, etc...Granted NRA is bigger, but come on, I don't even see mention of this in my CCA newsletters or magazines.

I am not one to predict doom and gloom tomorrow or next week, but someone has to look out for us - or we have to do it ourselves!!!

CCA's been quiet on this issue??? Interesting.....Here's a link on CCA's website with 4 or 5 press releases on this very topic.

how dare you do research and find something contrary to popular belief. don't you know it is easier to argue your point when it is the only one you are aware of?

Doesn't seem to have done any good - I stand corrected, but you had to dig on their website to find anything. Just saying anytime their is any sort of talk of gun legislation, the NRA is all over the place.

Quote from the ESPN article: That's a disappointment, but not really a surprise for fishing industry insiders who have negotiated for months with officials at the Council on Environmental Quality and bureaucrats on the task force. These angling advocates have come to suspect that public input into the process was a charade from the beginning....

....
Consequently, unless anglers speak up and convince their Congressional representatives to stop this bureaucratic freight train, it appears that the task force will issue a final report for "marine spatial planning" by late March, with President Barack Obama then issuing an Executive Order to implement its recommendations — whatever they may be.

If our main source of advocacy can't impact these decisions then we need to do it ourselves. Like I said, may be jumping the gun, but who knows.

Frickin' scary....

Mediumheavyaction6'6 03-09-2010 09:02 PM

i don't think you are jumping the gun at all. This is one of the scariest things we as anglers have ever had to deal with. I agree with you 100% Micah the CCA needs to be out there beating every drum they can. This is what they as an organization should be fighting for. I for some reason feel the need to poke the bear.

We need a Louisiana law........that give us the right to all waters clamed by the state.

Wasn't there a similar law passed a few years ago to protect our rights to hunt?

From the editor

Firestorms get started in a variety of ways, especially on politicized issues.
ESPNOutdoors.com inadvertently contributed to a flare-up Tuesday when we posted the latest piece in a series of stories on President Barack Obama's newly created Ocean Policy Task Force, a column written by Robert Montgomery, a conservation writer for BASS since 1985. Regrettably, we made several errors in the editing and presentation of this installment. Though our series has included numerous news stories on the topic, this was not one of those -- it was an opinion piece, and should clearly have been labeled as commentary.
And while our series overall has examined several sides of this topic, this particular column was not properly balanced and failed to represent contrary points of view. We have reached out to people on every side of the issue and reported their points of view -- if they chose to respond -- throughout the series, but failed to do so in this specific column.
This series started in October and has included several updates on how the creation of that task force and its actions could impact recreational anglers. ESPNOutdoors.com should have made it clear to all readers that this was part of a larger series, and -- even though this was Montgomery's opinion, and those of the sources quoted in the column -- we should have taken more care to fairly represent opposing arguments.
We do feel it is our duty to cover issues surrounding outdoor sports to the best of our abilities, and given the nature of this task force and the potential impact on all fisherman, this was an appropriate topic to address for our audience. We take seriously the tenets of journalism that require we take an unbiased approach, and when we make mistakes in the presentation of a story or a column, it is our responsibility to admit them.
Any confusion on that part rests entirely on my shoulders as the executive editor of this site.
We have appended the original column to note that it was in fact a commentary, and we will institute more rigorous editing safeguards in order to prevent such issues in the future.

Yes LA only claims from coast to 3 miles offshore

NMFS claims 3-100 miles out

I'd like to take him duck hunting.

I already took Jordan swimp dipping too many times. I don't allow cane poles in my boat.
