Can Obama REALLY make it illegal to rod-n-reel fish?

Fishermen’s fear: Public's 'right to fish' shifting under Obama?
http://news.yahoo.com/s/csm/20100309/ts_csm/286232
"many weekend anglers fear that the Obama administration’s promise to “fundamentally change” water management in the US will erode what they call the public’s “right to fish,” in turn creating economic losses for the $82 billion recreational fishing industry and a further deterioration of the American outdoorsman’s legacy."

    One more Obama tactic to socialize America. The government owns the banks, General Motors and now they want to own the fish in your pond.
    You can keep your HOPE and CHANGE, and I'll keep my Freedom

    "2012 the end of an ERROR"

    This is what happens when the government owns half the country and has its hand in everything.

    The only winners here are the eco-fraud control freaks.
    Is there any decisions the politicians don't want to make for us?

  • He's destroyed so many industries and put so many more millions of people out of work, why not kill one more? All those people who make rods and reels and line and tackle boxes and the ones who run worm and minnow farms, they can all go on public assistance with everyone else he's put out of work. No biggie.

  • OP, there are concerns... . “Under the guise of ‘marine spatial planning’ entire watersheds could be shut down, even 2,000 miles up a river drainage from the ocean."


    Now it would be political suicide for Obama admin to take this to extremes.  But with every little nudge, there are more concerns...

  • NP, so true.

    Everybody needs to get on the dole.

    But this, this fishing thing will never happen, because people who fish, hunt, etc., will NEVER put up with it.
    He's messing with the WRONG people.
    Try telling men around here they can't fish.
    Yeah, right!
