Default A recent development for LUCRO?

Has anybody heard a rumor regarding the lawyer working for LUCRO? I was told that the lawyer had to resign from the case because of a conflict of interest. I was told that some of his other clients (possibly a higher priority than LUCRO) were in favor of the slot limit, and he felt it was a conflict of interests and stepped down from the case.

Default I voted yes but.....

I voted yes in this poll, however, I don't think TWRA has done enough. There needs to be a law against culling. In my last 3 trips to the Clinch, I have seen several dead fish culled off stingers and a fisherman fill is limit and then get "his wife's" stringer and begin to fill hers. I know we are almost there, but let's continue to make comments to strengthen the laws and don't just settle for 1/4 or 1/3 of the way to where we need to be. They still need to consider the river above the weir as a possible trophy area since this land is not held by private land owners.

Default Culling and Overfishing?

TNGlen,

You didn't happen to be on the river this past Friday were you? I saw a man who had a stringer full, at least a dozen trout, each one no longer than about 7". As you said, slot limits cannot control this behavior, only enforcement by TWRA. At first I thought about saying something to the gentleman, but then I thought otherwise. If I had been able to get a signal on my phone, I would have called him in. What meat fisherman should realize is that once they catch their limit they should stop fishing. Not culling their fish. After the fish have had a rope drug over thier gills and pulled around upside down in the river, the likelihood of them surviving is not very high.

Current regulations pertaining to Clinch allow for 7 troutdaily with no size regulation. It makes you wonder what a person would do with 7 trout 1" long.

I think twra need to worry more about this than a slot limit. Why stock a bunch of fingerlings and then fishermen clean them out and I guess throw em' in the trash or give it to the cat. What a waste.
