 Post subject: They Call This Management?
PostPosted: Sat May 20, 2006 12:48 pm 
The California Fish and Game Commission took action at its February 3, 2006 meeting to increase the recreational surfperch bag and possession limit from five to 20 surfperch in the aggregate, with not more than 10 surfperch of any one species. This limit is separate from the 20-fish daily limit of shiner surfperch. This increase to the bag limit, however, does not apply to waters of the San Francisco and San Pablo bays, where the limit will remain five fish in the aggregate, not including shiner surfperch.

This regulation change becomes effective Sunday, May 21, 2006.

Section 28.59 of Title 14, California Code of Regulations, has been amended to read as follows:

§28.59. Surfperch.
(a) For purposes of this Section, the term “surfperchâ€Â

Sure it is. It "manages" to accomodate someones interest or agenda, regardless of the impact to the majority.

Maybe the DFG directors neighbor, or love interest, or charitable benefactor likes killing buckets of surfperch.

It's management by objectives. You just need to know who wrote the mission statement.

When I heard about this a few days ago I thought, What a crying damn shame. Most of the people I know who surf fish are CP&R and although I may roll my eyes at the bucketeers...I can't fault someone fishing within the law.
But here's what bugs me about this new limit law. No respect for the spawn. More than a few times I've watched helplessly while a law abiding fisherman walked his perch from shore to bucket....littering the sand with perch fry all the way. True story...I once offered a bucketeer 5 bucks (the price of a burger) for a momma perch on her way to the bucket...can't print what he told me to do with my 5 bucks.

Better watch what you say sanddab, they may decide in a year that Surf Perch are almost extinct and you are not allowed to go near any water that they inhabit.

Now that is too funny sanddab. If that is what you really think then you couldn't be more wrong.

Sandcrab....who are these "they" that are watched by the anglers?
The DFG?
Other anglers?

I'm confused.

No - regulations are written for whoever gives the politicians (yes, the DFG is political) the most money. It usually has nothing to do with protecting a species. The MLPA is a perfect example.

If they truly were concerned with protecting a species you would see lower bag limits, catch & release areas, artificial lure only areas, and slot limits.

Who'd want to kill that many of them cute little fellas anyhow?

I enjoy their company, without good sized BSPs around there would be a lot more slow days fishing in the surf.
