That still leaves me cold when again I ask as Nick does above, why the big heave ho as you say when a more thoughtful return could easily be deployed.
You guys are so well set up to fish from the pier yet the piece of kit to preserve your future fishing results is not even considered.
I refute the earlier suggestion that the fish don’t get harmed when biffed back from 15 to 20 feet skyward.
How do you know???
I am certainly no tree-hugger but surely a bit of thought could and should be directed at preserving some of the present for the future of the resource and sport.
Think about what you experienced as kids and what it is like now, then think what your kids may experience in future if we do not protect what we don’t want right now.
