Two women are having coffee at the office water cooler.
First woman: "My husband goes fishing every saturday.
Catty co-worker: How do you know he isn't having an affair?
FW: Because he never brings home any fish.

PugetMike, I couldn't agree more with you. I thought California regs were excessively complex until I moved up here in Wa. I own 2 boats and fish the San Juans and occasionally a river or two. I have been fishing now in Wa. state for about 4 years. No, fishing up here is not simple and as one said in an earlier post it is more like working than pleasure, but we fishermen put up with all this meddling because we love the outdoors and fishing.
It is amazing how often I hear the tired old B.S. about we recreational fisherpeople over fishing all the species, poaching, etc. The fact is we probably shouldn't even be regulated because we don't harvest enough compared to commercial and Native American fisheries. The published numbers I read through research is on average the Commercial/Indian take of all fisheries is 97%. That means we catch only 3% of the total take. So why all the regs, cost, enforcement, etc. As you said it is primarily government overreach and bureauracy pure and simple. Yes all of it is needed for commercial fishing but not the recreational guy. And to the prior person who is saddened by not being able to no longer keep sturgeon, guess what? There is still a commercial season for them. What a joke!
