dont buy two liscense   go to dnr and tgell them you lost your sticker n they will give you a replacement
I know it's only 5 bucks, but yet again, MD sticks it to its residents; it's the principle.  I purchase TWO bay sport decal each year (one for each of my boats) which currently include the complimentary crabbing.  Now this is no longer covered and will force me to buy yet another license.  Why didn't they just say a bay sport boat decal still includes your crabbing license? 

On another note, having that decal suffice for the license was nice because if DNR was out just doing a quick review of the river, I have seen em many times slide over towards me, see the decal, review my deployed gear and then take off to the next boat without actually stopping me.  I'm sure many have had that happen.  Now, no more of that. In order for them to know you are properly licensed, they will have to see another piece of paper.

Again, I am not complaining about 5 bucks, it's the principle.

Lastly, I have NO problem with out of state people enjoying the resources of the bay, but if they think going from $10 to $35 is going to do ANYTHING to help the congestion at the ramps and on the water, they better take another drag off that wacky weed.

On the positive side it appears that they're not going to make rec's report there catch yet but i'm sure that will change.


Why is that on the positive side?  Part of the problem with MD's crab management is that they have no idea what the total catch is, and virtually no data at all from the ever-increasing recreational user group.  So IMO, the positive side would be that you need to start reporting your catch, so that we know just how many crabs are being taken.

There wasn't much about crab management in the proposal.... just mentioning turtles and the need to dig deeper into your wallet. I would happily report 0 turtles caught every season, if they truly need the data (note sarcasm). If all this state needs is data, they could collect it from guys back at that CONJESTED RAMP where they're all at apparently. OR,call down the list of baysport license holders from the dnr.  No, they'll call 7-11's and churches and the such and report they cant collect the data. Much in the same way they will tax people who aren't even living on the watershed for fertilizer they don't use, instead of taxing the fertilizer!

Boy oh boy.  Y'all would be livid if you had to deal with the commercial fee increases that are coming, let alone an extra $10-

And what is that based on?  It's not based on anything except opinions and guesses, which is my point.  That's the current state of our "management".

You will always catch more crabs with a DOT.NET than a DOT.COM
