Capt. Ron Behnke
We are down to our last two issues for 2013 with our
last issue being next month on December 13th. It has been a little over
one year that we have been strictly on-line at saltyangler.com. It has
been a learning experience and we are working diligently to make
adjustments to make the magazine better. We are also working hard to
get the word out that the web site is out there, informative, and has
the most up-to-date information about fishing on the coast. We
appreciate all of our loyal readers and ask you to let your fellow
fishermen know about it.
Once again, the Texas Parks and Wildlife
Department is considering reducing the trout limit on the rest of the
coast to include Port O’Connor and points south through the Land Cut
just as they did in the lower coast. More flounder limit reductions are
also on their radar. It looks like the push to “just keep five” is not
over. In my opinion, the fact that the surveys show that most fishermen
only catch an average of two trout a day doesn’t really speak to the
argument that the fishery is overfished and the limits should be cut if
no one catches five fish per day anyway. Keep tuned for dates and
location of the upcoming “scoping” meetings that will be set for late
December and January. Make every effort to attend and voice your
opinion on this controversial issue.
Thanksgiving is next week and it is a great
time to look back on 2013 and be thankful for all that you have. We
want to wish all of you a safe and happy holiday.
