A Strange New World. With all the Talk of the closure of the Buffer Zone and continued expansion of various marine parks it would seem that new fishing destinations for the longer trips would need to eventually be identified if these longer trips will continue to be viable. Not only with these destinations have to be identified but there will probably have to be agreements/permits in place with the local authorities to fish these location without prejudice. Currently there are a 3 boats out there right now in the zone. The daily reports have ceased, The FB posts have ceased. All Social media communication has ceased. My guess is this is pre-meditated and they are going to keep silent and instruct their passengers to do the same until something can be figured out. Is this going to be the new normal? It was always the reports , stories/lore that brought many of us to our original shared passion of loving LR fishing. It was how the fishery built their book of business in the first place. Maybe the pictures of dead fish lying everywhere helped contribute to the reality we are now in. Maybe it speeded up the process. But without some of that, Many LR businesses could die a quicker death. I am sure there will be viable new options in the future.... Maybe it will be new zones not fished before, maybe it will be known locations that we can fish with local permission. A new seamount, PV, Panama , Costa Rica? there are options. Whatever or wherever it is ,I hope this sorts itself out as I am concerned.
