I personally am sick of being treated like some kind of idiot. I have been fishing the Saginaw Bay for 40 years. When I started there was no limit and no problem catching as many as you wanted. The main difference is back then you would see a commercial net once in a great while. Today, you cannot go out of any port without seeing commercial fishing nets lining the entire Saginaw bay. Now I ask.. What's the issue with the depleted perch population? DAH!!! Why? Possible kickbacks? Are we just going to keep punishing the sport fisherman while the commercial fisherman wipe out the perch population like they did to the walleye years ago? Get a clue!!!!!!!!
