Revised BFT Quota

Just saw a release that indicated that NMFS is going to count the 1st half of the "over quota" due to discards to the long liners. They had discussed taking that off the "angling" category. As it stands now, the Angling category is unchanged from that set initially.

Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn.

Harpoon is 60%
The real test will be George's. If people stay off George's until later in the season general will stay open longer. The true commercial guys are scared all of the 60 ft sports will head out and pull a quota grab for $2 fish.

The commercial guys will be forced to go to Georges early.
