It's interesting that you should even have to make mention of this to this poster. In another thread luv2hunt suggested I attend a national powwow convention to find the information about the tribes that he was referencing that has given him a new take on the Consent Decree.
That special interest group is recreational fisherman. What is your interest group?
Like I said before, transponders insinuate guilt before being found guilty. In the American justice system, isn't a person innocent until found guilty. Maybe we should place a speed monitor in every vehicle and upload all speed limit violations, then the State can send a ticket in the mail.
Sounds like almost everyone in the Native community knows who the violators are, so have the Tribal court cite them for their violations.
They are just working within the legal, political, special interest, Treaty, Consent, Government and Biological constraints and have to make decisions that make EVERYONE happy. An impossible goal.
Anyone on the water has a right to know unattended nets exit.
It's time the Federal government demanded responsibility for nets to not be abandoned long enough for a catch to rot.
And restitution for damage to craft when nets are not properly set and marked. As well as reimbursement to the state and Coast Gurad for expenses incurred due to nets.
If the Federal government can't assign responsibility, why is it involved top heavily in the situation causing a lack of responsibility? Let those tasked with enforcement and having to intervene due to damage regulate.
Fishing is allowed. Unfettered at will is not. Michigan is now settled.

Lets just hope they are close! Don't need to have the courts make the decision and have the Consent process go away. Someone said a 50/50 allocation and non native commercial netting restrictions in the entire Treaty zone. Not good.
That relative of mine that lives in the TC area saw a Tribal fishing tug at the mouth of the Boardman on 10/1, Coincidence?
How is it that some feel they know the detail of the Consent rewrite? Isn't everything we have been discussing been SPECULATION? Unless you or someone you know is is on the negotiating team or has privy (CMPR) to the results, the conclusions we make are just guesses.
Probably sooner than later the Consent will be made public and then we will all know.
16 active gill netters vs 1.083 million fishing licenses sold in the state of Michigan in 2021. 16 v 1 million.
And we still give them everything they want.
Upside down clown world out here.

Actually, you've opted to read right past the treaty clause that was ignored in the original Federal court decision by Fox, which negated thier rights to the resource should the land be needed for settlement...
Sport fisherman as a group plying the Great Lakes, as well as charter captains and their "industry" did not exist in any numbers in 1836.
Because it can be open to the same level of overly broad interpretation that lead to his initial decision.
