Post by: djkimmel on June 21, 2011, 08:43:13 PM
and maybe Michigan too, and any other state with closed bass seasons.

Bass Anglers We Need Your HELP for New York Bass Season (

The NYS DEC is considering possible regulation changes to increase catch and release bass fishing opportunities. As you should know it has been an extremely long process to get to where we are with the current regulations. And by all accounts bass anglers have thoroughly enjoyed the increased opportunities and bass populations have been sustainable.

Please read this article and send your support to EACH of the four counties listed asking that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) bring this regulation forward for public comment… because without your support anglers will not even be given the opportunity to comment on this regulation.

Also pass this on to as many people as you can and ask them to copy/paste and email to each of the FOUR counties… if they just copy and paste it will take them less than 2 minutes!!

We need this!! You do not have to live in New York. You could state that you may fish more in New York if they increase bass fishing opportunities. These types of changes help any other state that has any type of closed bass season.
