    That is so stupid DPNR harassing the little recreational fisherman that 50% off the time never catches anything, but is not seeing the damage that is being done by these commercial fisher man, they worried about a 2 to 10 pounds catch of fish from a recreational fisherman that does it to relax mentally from a long days of work. But they don’t see the thousands of pounds that these commercial fisherman do not report… DPNR is a bunch CLOWNS!!! They AFRAID to confront the commercial fisherman, but want to show muscle on the guys that fishes once or twice a month. BIG CLOWNS!!!!!! They can stick that meeting up where the sun don’t shine along with there licenses… I will continue doing my recreational fishing. Catch me if you can clowns>>>>>>:)
