This week we have had a positive response to our Bill in the Senate and hoping for the same in the House. This is a long process and we NEED everyone to go to the following links and click on the 'Support' button at each link. We only had 5 people do it and we need 500! It only takes about 20 seconds on each link. Please do it.
This is the first step to a better future for warm water fishing in our state. The legislators do listen!
Here are the two links to comment on the bill we are proposing for creation of a Warm Water Advisory Committee. It is important that you comment on both the House and Senate Bills.
