I found this article on the bassmaster website. Seems that we could be in danger of losing some of our favorite fishing spots because they are lumping recreational fishermen in with commercial fishing. I am all for conservation, but the average angler does and will not hurt the population of fish in a body of water such as Lake Erie. I do not know the exact details about the legislature. All I know is what I have read from the article. Below there is a link to the article on the bassmaster website. http://sports.espn.go.com/outdoors/bassmaster/conservation/news/story?page=b_con_FedsAccess_20091005
