The Obama administration will accept no more public input for a federal strategy that could prohibit U.S. citizens from fishing the nation's oceans, coastal areas, Great Lakes, and even inland waters.
This announcement comes at the time when the situation supposedly still is "fluid" and the Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force still hasn't issued its final report on zoning uses of these waters.
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.
"When the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) completed their successful campaign to convince the Ontario government to end one of the best scientifically managed big game hunts in North America (spring bear), the results of their agenda had severe economic impacts on small family businesses and the tourism economy of communities across northern and central Ontario," said Phil Morlock, director of environmental affairs for Shimano.

There are a million jobs at stake, along with a respected and enjoyable pastime. Fight fight fight!
Will they consider catfish farms “public water”?
Is it too early to expect a Spring sale on pitchforks?
Where exactly did the water in those farms come from, hmmmmm???
I beginning to really despise the commies and all who put them in charge. I have a policy now. ANyone who voted for Obama I do not associate with. They are my enemy just as he is.
Wars have been fought over much less than this.
Probably, I mean we are talking about a group of people that have no belief in private property/property rights. The will of the collective always trumps that of the individual in their eyes.

( that's just one of many of my fishing reels. I have almost as many fishing rigs as I do guns, and I don't know how many that is off hand :-) )
How much money would states stand to lose as well from fishing licenses, tourism etc?
Maybe people will learn that elections have consequences... na they’ll do the same thing again. We’re being regulated to death but no one seems to be able to roll back these regulations once they get put on the books.
They aren't even representing the will of the collective here. They're just supporting the will of a couple of long-time leftist front groups. Most of the "environmental" and all of the "animal rights" groups exist for no other reason than to push communism through the back door, when we wouldn't invite it in through the front.
To paraphrase Winston Churchill’s greatest speech:
We fight them on the beaches, we will fight them on the river banks and on the farm ponds, we will fight them in the trout streams, from Okeechobee to the Madison River, from Toledo Bend to Mille Lacs, we will never surrender.
If some ACORN type goobermint slug comes up to me while I'm fishing, he better get ready to rumble.
I’m visiting a beach this summer. I am going to surf-fish from the beach. FUBO
