    Thanks John....good info now that the bugs are gettin ready to take off.


    Funny about that No boat limit when hoopin. Not sure how they would enforce it as long as the # of bugs that are onboard is equal to or below what the limit is for the # of peoples are pullin the nets.

    Divers I could see them enforcing tho..better just come up with 7 in your bag even if you know your bud sucks at grabbing bugs...;)
