This forum has become more of a trolling forum than a BF one, but lots of us go BF when the trolling season is slow, plus what's happening with the Feds screwing the BFishermen could happen to the trolling guys too so we all have a stake in stopping it now. This might better be in the General Discussion forum but it parallels the "No Fish, No Hunt" thread on this Catch Report forum so I'm posting it here.

To keep this thread from being too long and a repeat of the info that's already online, please go to this link to read the details: http://hawaiianfishingreports.ning.com/forum/topics/write-for-your-bf

That link gives the background and how to take our last best shot by writing to our congressional delegation. I know we're all reluctant to get involved and feel like it ain't gonna make a difference anyway, but if we do nothing, then guarans we gonna lose. We have to at least fight for what we want and that link makes it easy to do so, since it contains the info/background, links to email our congress people and even a boilerplate letter Uncle Roy says we can all use and modify to suit our own needs.

We're all willing to put in the time and effort to go catch a big one, so let's put in the relatively little time and effort to keep the Feds from using BS studies to reduce the BF catch quota and maybe we can keep them from setting BS quotas on the pelagics like the ahi and bigeye in the future.

Aloha.
