Default VR-287 Gone Forever

Well, VR 287 was removed today. Another fishing hole lost forever in the GOM.

Are they cutting them off? Not blowing them up?

Guess if its going to happen, that cutting them kills less fish bout the only good thing I can think of

Just doesn't make any sense... These things should be cut off 20-30 ft below surface (whatever makes the most sense from a safety standpoint, then have a marker placed there so shrimp boats know there is something there...

And they should then be allowed to remain as valuable reefs..

Anything that makes sense does not happen when the gobment is involved. We are jetting down 20' below mudline and cutting for removal. 3 of 4 have been cut as of 7pm tonight. It will be on a deck tomorrow.

I think this may be the first time I've ever seen you post something not scientific! Did you smoke some of that illegal plant?!

No wacky toebacky here. Age and life's hard knocks may have dampened my sense of humor a bit, but occasionally I still take a swing at a hanging curve.
