Fisheries group calls for total gill-net ban, cites legislative inaction on gamefish bill - North Carolina Sportsman



This article is almost two years old, but I enjoyed reading it again. I hope you do also.
Tight Lines!
Johnny



The Coastal Fisheries Reform Group declared last week its intent to seek a total gill-net ban in North Carolina coastal waters.

The notice came in a news release that cited inaction on the part of the state legislature on a bill that would give gamefish status to spotted seatrout, striped bass and red drum, plus inaction on the part of the legislature’s Committee on Marine Resources. CFRG also cites inaction on the part of the North Carolina Marine Fisheries Commission to approve measures to conserve and protect certain saltwater fish species.

Whiting Fishing • Inshore Fishing in Southeast North Carolina • North Carolina Sportsman, NC:

'via Blog this'

With the beautiful 70 degree and slightly overcast day planned ahead Capt. Butch and Barbara along with BoBo and myself decided to make a trip Whiting fishing. After fighting a little fog to get anchored up on our desired location, Capt. Butch had one in the boat before anyone else even had gotten their bait on! 'They're biting!' he sounded and soon we all 3 were bringing Whitings in the boat at a regular pace!

Black drum will get creel, size limits on Jan. 1.


N.C. anglers can't keep black drum under 14 inches, only one over 25 inches - North Carolina Sportsman

The N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission has voted to manage the recreational catch of black drum with size and creel limits that will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2014.
Federal fisheries managers require states to implement possession limits and size minimums on black drum, and the commission that oversees North Carolina’s coastal fisheries voted at its November meeting to establish a 10-fish recreational creel limit, a 14-inch size minimum and a 14- to 25-inch slot limit that allows one fish longer than 25 inches to be kept daily.
