Between being cold for some reason and my back and knees hurting I feel miserable BUT I am out here
I let a bakers dozen slip past , to far and to thick and all appeared to be does, for about 30 minutes so I am now waiting to see what happens next lol
We could just make possession of a rock fish punishable by death and hope they make it. That way it’s 100% fair. The watermen and the sportsmen can’t have them. You know a 100% real moratorium.
While we are at it let’s put a 100% moratorium on all fish, crabs and oysters.
That’ll show those...
Yeah, well they can all just get the hell away from me lol.
Once upon a time we had epidemics like smallpox and the plague naturally removing very large numbers of people out of the ecosystem. We have “progressed” so that doesn’t happen. It’s unnatural.
So this is what we get.
Which direction should I turn?
I thought having an opinion on something was ok? I guess not
I have been called a
MAGA republican nut
A right wing gun nut
A redneck nut
A filth farmer
An uneducated laborer who won’t turn out to be anything
A stupid hick
A filthy waterman...
People are like fleas on this planet
Just like fleas on a dog, well a few don’t really bother the dog to much but at one point the snout of fleas gets high enough that it’s far more than a bother and at another point the number of fleas drags the dog down to a point where it’s hair falls out...
Thanks but rockfish ain’t causing these nightmares
But again the health of the bay is a nightmare all on its own.
Sometimes I wonder what the bay was like when my ancestors got here in the 1600. I have read about it but I bet what they wrote didn’t even come close to the beauty and splendor...
Maybe the problem is I have been sober for a long time lol
I really shouldn’t care anymore. I quit working the water, I don’t farm anymore and we closed up our shucking house and quit selling crabs and fish so I shouldn’t give two shytes, but I do. Deep down I do.
But it’s everyone’s fault...
People are quick to point fingers
It’s the watermen!!
It’s the charter boats!’
It’s the recreational fishermen!!
It’s the farmers!!
I am not saying the above groups have nothing to do with it
But in reality it’s the fact that there are to many people. To many people.
Indeed every day on this side of the dirt is a blessing. I keep reminding myself of that lol.
I am back in my “stand”, it’s on the ground so more of a blind, from my midday lunch and hopefully my much younger cousin is going to walk something this way
I did have a misstep on the way back in...
