This is old news! It’s the way it’s always been! We know what they want us to know! We have no right to enforcement or to demand enforcement of anything! We need legislation!!! Bla bla
I’ve been married for 29 years, I’m emotionless.John
I understand your emotion! Keep in mind the Treaty and Consent are there to somewhat protect us. The Treaty and Consent, un enforced, would allow the Natives to fish and net on every lake and river within the Treaty zone. The Consent restricts them to netting zones.
I’m OK with that too, I don’t think non-native commercial fishing is any different than native commercial fishing. It shouldn’t be done in the Great Lakes. And not that I’m a stickler for this but I would change that term from white to non-native. There are a lot of non-whites that are in this fight also.I think the 2000 Consent banned non Native commercial netters from fishing some exclusive Native waters. Recreational anglers can fish anywhere in the Consent zone but have to follow white man reg's.
But they use our well fare & free medical system, right? Seems fair! Cool👍 Souvern nation my fanny!!✌There in lies the issue. Non tribal members actually do not know what actions were taken if any. It’s a closed nation that has its own laws and punishment system. It may not seem fair to outsiders but that’s the way it is.
This really doesn’t say anything! It’s status quo for how it’s always been. Nothing different. Recreational anglers will not suffer one bit, it’s the commercial and the charter fishermen that are going to suffer. The impact on recreational fisherman will be next to nil, Other than having to weave around a few nets, or possibly just move them like we always have in the past! The other side of this law is these white folk don’t answer to the tribal laws.Come on jatc! It's another one of those pseudo public input sessions that are used to blow steam off of those that oppose the decision. Give them time to vent and allow them to say good bye. It's a done deal at that point.
Us recreational anglers can only hope for the best.
