Do what ever is needed to protect the bass but just catch limits wont work alone. bass food sources like pogies and herring and mackerel also need attention
And climate change

They all have small effects on stocks , but combined are a huge threat

And the current Administration actions of interfering in sentencing off a felon and removing regulations just for mythical short term economic gains is also a real danger . To fish stocks

on the topic of poaching and enforcement,

I realize that they are short staffed with officers, but I have seen them in very common poaching areas, while its happening, and doing nothing. If an officer working in RI doesn't know WHERE poaching often occurs, and how to spot the signs of it, then what good are they?
I have said this before... If I had a badge and a ticket book, you give me one day per week and I will write up so many LEGIT violations you could balance the state budget by the end of the summer. I have given up calling in violations, because the response time is counted in hours (if at all). They should hire a single designated "poaching/regulation violation" officer...I mean a real pit bull that hands out real violations, and word will spread fast. Lets be honest, we all know what parts of the highway you definitely cant speed on...tell me why that is?

Sent an email this morning (1 fish 28"-35"). If a lazy SOB like me can do it, well... anyone can.

What is a real joke is they tried to base some things on the data of outings for surf and boat. It is almost impossible to get skunked by boat. In the surf it is common to get skunked and even more common when you do get into fish to not get a legal fish. If you can not get a legal fish by boat you are just not trying hard enough in my very humble opinion.

Things should be based on a catch report, not an outing report.
