It is 50 per day for neckers and scappers.....this possible new change would impact recreational and commercial lobstermen who presently have no limit.  This would all but eliminate a commercial blue crab fishery in the state

Well look what the cat dragged in...

Be very careful Masspi - you know what tender, bloated egos there are to pussyfoot around here.

Was there ever a commercial blue crab fishery to lose?

Thanks for the reference, I for one appreciate your posts even if you do say bad mean things to people who are probably better for having heard them.

I suspect that Paul Diodati is a moderator on this forum...

ps - rec lobstermen have to stick to the 50/day limit. We just get to set pots.

Yeah, thats the first thing I thought..  50 crabs for a commercial guy would really be fishing for his own cookpot...

Jack,

My read of the regs doesn't even admit that there is a commercial fishery for blue crab in Massachusetts.

Mass. Marine Fisheries defines a local 'crustacean' as a lobster or a northern shrimp. Calinectes Sapidus is an afterthought at best.

That doesn't mean commercial fishermen aren't out there after them.

I might change my handle to "Cat Dragged In".....has a good ring to it.  The director of mass. marine fisheries.............note the contemptuous use of no capital letters...........and I have had many scathing e-mails and letters since he was appointed by our worthless governor.  re: the salt water license program mandated by the feds and the states total inaction on protecting the taxpayers of Massachusetts.

I plan on being at the hearing on the 16th. at 6:00 PM in Plymouth.......could be fun if Paul is there..........I can feel my blood boiling already.

This whole matter of discussion is a petition submitted by some unknown person/group......can't find out who it is.  Got some spare time, stop by the Plymouth hearing, could be very interesting.

I disavow anything in this message that offends a moderator of this site.

Chatham, on Cape Cod is where the crabs draw the line, as far as I know, and until someone posts results to the contrary.

There's a guy on here crabbing in Pleasant Bay and he's the northernmost crabber on record.

A few miles southwest is Masspi, the crabbiest crabber in Buzzards Bay.

HOPEFULLY HE AND i HAVE LERNED AR LESSIN ABOUT "TAUNTING THE MODS"...

Crime doesn't pay, Masspi.
