Yeah, cows aren't common but they certainly aren't as rare as they used to be; and the by catch mortality is becoming a problem. Descending devices should be required for people fishing in the cow protection areas, particularly the outer banks and San Nicholas island.
This was on the drop-off outside Long Beach.

    I have never been big on more government regulation but I'm warming to these descending devices. The thought of releasing fish on rock cod trips when you knew they weren't going to survive always bugged me. Carrying an extra 1/2 rod/reel for the descender is a small pain but I'd like to leave behind a healthier fishery for those that follow.
