In stealing the words of pastor/activist Martin Niemoller who wrote about the heavy burden of guilt felt by many Germans after the holocaust, allow me to offer this…

When they came for the commercial fishermen,
I remained silent;
I was not a commercial fisherman.

When they locked up shares of red snapper,
I remained silent;
I was not a red snapper fisherman.

When they went after the party & charter boat operators,
I did not speak out;
I was not a for-hire captain.

When they closed off Pacific waters, Stellwagen & Biscayne Bay,
I remained silent;
I didn’t fish there.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out


On 3-21-12, we're all fishermen...united we can stand, divided we fall.[/QUOTE]

Perfect quote. I remember this quote and I thought of it just before I read your response.

And I can't tell you how many times someone said it doesn't matter. It does matter! You have to get involved. These anti-fishermmen HATE us. They cannot stand that someone is fishing on their Ocean. Or walking in their woods or climbing their mountain or canoeing on their river.

Did you read the part about the ENGO lobbists pretending to be fishermen? Telling congress that they oppose measures that would allow us more fishing oppertunities? That's not made up --I've seen it.

Do your best to get to this march however you can.

Sorry to say I don't really care who's going or not going, or why or why not. I just want to know how much the busses are and where they are leaving from so I can sign up. I went to the last one and I'm going to this one.

Amen! I am currently working on getting buses funded so the ride will be FREE. I am working with the owner of Academy buses whom we used last time (I have known Marc and Francis since I was a kid and their father owned the company) to get the best price possible and then get funding to cover as many buses as possible.

My parking lot will be used in Brielle again and NONE of my boats will be sailing that day. The Jamaica, Paramount, Jamaica Star and Riverboats will all be tied to the dock that day (riverboats would be tied up anyway in March!) so we will have ample parking available for however many buses I can get funding for.

Will be talking to the SSFFF board when Dave gets back next week from his fishing trip about using that site for booking the buses like I did last time. SSFFF is one of the organizers of this event again like they were the first time, thank you all for making it possible for us to fight for YOU, whether you think it is "worth it" or not!!

Please stay tuned to www.fishunited.com or www.keepfishermenfishing.com (same site) for details as they become available. I own the site and will update it as often as possible. (currently having issues with my host so some images may not show up at the moment but the content is still there)

Stay tuned, give me the next 7 days to iron out details but rest assured from at least Brielle there will be a bus or buses sailing if I have to pay for the frigging thing myself.

My children will not be attending school that day so they can attend the march, hope to see all of you there.

Hard for me to understand why it is so hard for our recreational anglers to see how important a good showing in Washington is for us.
Sure you have to take a day off work and in this economy its a little tougher but IF you value the fishing we have today and want to KEEP IT at the same level or better the Government needs to know enough people showing up speaks a little louder at voting time.

A showing of 5000 at the last one had fisherman from all over the United states who payed alot more in transportation fees, hotel rooms etc to show they CARED.

If just 10 percent of the recreational fisherman just from NJ alone showed up they probably would have to shut the the march down and how great would that be. I think couldnt get any better than that, as the media would go nuts.

pretty sad that the Gay groups can get more support for thier functions trying to gain something, that we as fisherman can for something thats being TAKEN AWAY.


come out and lets say it a little louder

I FISH I VOTE

Hopefully this protest will draw real numbers, the kind that really garner the politicians attention.
I f we don't show up in respectable numbers then this fight will not go well! It's time to stand up & be counted , it's time to bring the fight to their doorstep.
Support the handful that fight for our right to fish on a daily basis , it's one day to support their efforts .
It could be now or never , so make it a point to attend!
