Way more important issues going on in our county, then being able to fish.................... think about it..

I have thought about it and Working to support our Family's is Priority One . Unemplyment is one of the issues .If the Boats don't run then more Good Men and Women are unemployed . The whole Coastal Community suffers From the Hotels to the 7-11's meaning even more unemployment . I guess that you are not for Traditions or Family Business's . Are you willing to let the whole Fishing Industry go under ? Genersations of Fishermen have left our Ports to harvest the Oceans Bounty Both Sports and Commercial . Family Operated Business's passed on from Father to Son . I'm not ready to see the last of the Watermen .

If it is a quiet day on the hill then you may see Frank, Schumer and Pallone come out and appease us. They will promise us the world but deliver nothing.

If both branches are debating changes to spending limits, the national debt, payroll tax or unemployment payments then we will be left outside to discuss the upcoming flounder season, lol.

I will be there but I am not expecting anything positive to come out of it. Maybe I am burnt out.

if only 10% of the salt water fisherman would take the day and show up for this , The buzz that it would create in Washington would be one remembered for years, but just as bad is if guys are not willing to stand up for the lifestyle they enjoy, it will just allow those in power to due as they see fit without a care about what you want

Dan, as I said before, I will be there but I do not expect that one million of us would make a difference. It is an election year with many issues standing before congress. The rights of fishermen or the economic impact will mean little to the powers that be.

Hopefully I am wrong and that is why I will stand with my fellow anglers on the 21st. I refuse to give up the fight.

I worked in the industry and have been unemployed for 2 years so that is why I am so negative on the whole issue.

Working on it. Have a meeting tonight and once I know how many buses we can sponsor (make FREE) I will know what locations they will depart from. After that we can set up "for-hire" buses like last rally.

My meeting is tonight so details will be out by tomorrow evening or Friday morning at the latest.
