    gonna be tough

    I think fishing something to extinction is hard to do. Its going to take more than
    a few commercial fishermen.

    I think the commercial fishermen can make a substantial dent in their numbers and that's the basic idea behind their efforts. I don't think anyone is thinking that total depletion is going to happen. They do expect the commercial guys will knock the numbers down pretty good.

    These lakes will recover if enough commercial guys get involved.

    ďThe program will be fully funded by boat registration fees.Ē

    Sounds as though we can expect an increase. Iím good with that. First year in several that I didnít bother to fish Kentucky and Barkley.
