KURE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — Monday ushers in the unofficial start of the fall fishing season and there are new rules and regulation that could end your season early if your not aware.

Marine Patrol Officials say the biggest change that fishermen will see starting Monday is in the way license suspensions are enforced.

Two violations, and your license will now be suspended for 30 days. Four violations, and you won’t be able to set a line for at least one year.

Rules and regulations vary from fish to fish.

“We’re constantly checking seven days a week, 24 hours a day,” said Michael Ervin of the Marine Patrol. “We’re looking for people that may be violating the law or those that are not.”

Officials say the best way to learn about the new rules is to obtain a copy from your local pier house or bait shop.

A red herring is a clue which is intentionally or unintentionally misleading or distracting from the actual issue.

What’s a hog farm and a water works company got-a-do with what we talking about? We are upset with the fees to not stock the ocean and fines for well, who knows?

Yea! I am going nuts!!

It’s absolutely ridiculous to have to buy a license to fish on our coastal waters. Possibly inland where they may use that money to restock populations, but for those of us with a hook and a line to catch some dinner from the ocean?! I am all for having limits on fish, length restrictions,etc but to charge residents who already pay local, state and federal taxes to catch one darn fish is just another government way to aggravate us.

May I Chime in here? Those “License(s), ) Are if I’m Not mistaken, used to Improve ACCESS/BOATING RAMPS Addintionally PUBLIC ASSECS AREAS, and upkeep so such areas….. This is a Part of the Rec. Funds Lisense(s) are to go for…
Also purchasing, new access areas, (with the help of grants), to give US the Normal Fisherm/woman, an greater access to MORE Water(s)…
As if ANYONE ARE BULDING NEW PIERS ON OUR COAST AS OF LATE

WE NEED MORE *ENFORCEMENT* On our waters, check How many DMF Officers there are on Duty @ ANY one time, COMPARED to the Area(s) they have to cover, (square Miles)… It’s ALOT.

If you have seen the “violations that I’ve seen .”everday”, you would know what I mean..
There’s out-right massive Poaching up-on Our Waters 24/7….It happens MORE OFTEN than you think…

Our elected leaders run for these jobs to set there agenda’s, in these cases we have people who whould rather “protect” all species and eliminate fishing for all of us recreational fishermen, the only way to stop these fools is band toghter and fight. otherwise…bye bye fishing.

2 groups O worry about, that WANT to shutdown Fishing/Shellfishing…
Audubon Socitey
AND
Sea Turtle Groups, In other words, *Progressives**….
They want Beach access and Surf Fishing shut down..

Every time the regulations change, everybody goes nuts. The Regs are not that complicated and the catch limits for recreational fisherman are reasonable enough to feed a family and still put a few in the freezer. I still go out and fish all day. It isn’t illegal to catch more than your limit, it is illegal to keep more than your limit. It you want to get mad about the fishing regs get mad at CFPUA, big hog farms, golf courses and all the other polluters of our estuaries.

“We’re looking for people that may be violating the law or those that are not.”

The above is a quote from the news story. Why would a game warden look for people who are NOT violating to law? Some what of a dim-witted remark. If I want fish, I will go to the store and buy it until I have to be licensed to do that.
